Land Ho.....it's Mexico!

Early Wednesday morning, Lego-Man and I were awake before the other two. So we headed up to the front deck to see how close we were to land.





LAND HO!!!








Cozumel, Mexico was in our sights! We were excited. Not only because we finally reached our destination but because we had a day of F-U-N planned!

The shore excursion we signed up for was something called the "Isla Pasion by Twister!"
Raise your hand if that sounds like a lot of fun?!

The ship finally finished docking around 8AM and we had to be at our designated area by 8:45AM. We were off the ship with plenty of time to spare before our "Twister" adventure began.







We looked around the shops for a few minutes and we were ready for the Twister. Or so we thought!

Meet the Twister boat and our drivers, Pepe and Willie:



Yes, ladies and gentlemen, those are straps on each chair....for harnessing each body down!
And as coincidence had it, the entire GRITS family ended up in the front two benches of the boat.













Join us on the Twister, if you dare:

Our ride to Isla Pasion was about 25 minutes from the dock. And let me tell you, we got our money's worth of fun on this excursion. Between the high speed boat ride and the 360-degree turns, the kids will be talking about this for a LONG time.

Here's a look at some of our other pictures from the day:




And, as you have learned, no post would be complete without the towel animal of the day:


A Bulldog!




See you tomorrow, with snorkeling in Calica, Mexico!

You are a BRAVE soul for getting on one of those sea screamer boats. ::Shudder:: Those things terrify me!

Also, I thought the towel was a bunny. They are so ambiguous! :)

I don't like little boats - cruise ships are vessels, so I don't mind those so much, but that adventure you took about made me ill just watching the 35 seconds LOL I'm sure glad you all enjoyed it!

It looks like you are having a lot of fun on your trip - Enjoy!!

You actually got in the boat with Mexican's driving it? You are so very brave! It did look like fun though.

Oh and the Mexican comment - I can say that because I am Mexican. ;)
