If I had to pick a favorite day on our cruise,
the Cozumel Excursion would be the day.
We were up brights and early for breakfast,
because we had to debark the ship earlier than yesterday.
There was another cruise ship docking about 30 minutes after we docked,
and we were not allowed to be on the slip.
Something about keeping us safe from flying ropes ;)!
Watching the ship dock was really cool.
I find it so amazing how easily cruise ships can dock.
Since we were part of the first group off the ship,
we had some extra time to mill around.
We chose to do a zip linking and snorkeling excursion
and I was 12 kinds of excited. C had never been snorkeling before
I had snorkeled in the Caribbean before and loved it.
Initially I was super upset because that was the part of the activity
I was really looking forward to.
After being told our options, we chose to 'wait it out and cross our fingers'
the wind would cooperate.
Even though I knew the day would be fun without snorkeling,
I was really hoping everything would work out for us.
Once we arrived at the park, we were told the wind had changed
and that unless something crazy happened,
we would be able to snorkel!
Our guide gave us a quick tutorial on zip linking and rock climbing rules
and what to expect in the adventure park.
We only had two other couples in the group,
so there was a lot of time to go through all the obstacles.
We were able to repel down a 60 foot wall and zip line
back and forth from different columns.
I LOVED IT!!!
I'm a huge fan of rock climbing and zip lining
and this park was so fantastically awesome.
C thoughroughly enjoyed himself too.
Except for the part where we raced
and I kicked his TUSH climbing a wall.
THANK YOU THANK YOU, I'm a rockstar rock climber!
The adventure park was the morning activity
and after two hours it as time to go snorkeling.
There still was a decent wind, so they changed our entrance from
jumping off a platform to walking into the water via the beach.
I was lucky enough to jump in before
they decided to change the entrance point,
so I was able to experience both, woohoo.
One of the couples decided against snorkeling
so we had three guides for the fours of us.
It was awesome having a one-on-one relationship with the guides,
because they were able to give us extra attention.
I was able to reach out and pet a bunch of them and
I felt like I was in a move with all of them so close.
The guide thought my reaction was so funny,
he put another handful into the water and it became a frenzy.
Thank goodness they weren't piranhas right?!
We had a really fun time pointing out different fish to each other
and seeing who could stay under water longer.
If you ever have a chance to go snorkeling DO IT!
Seeing the world God created under water is breathtakingly magical.
I was amazed by the beauty housed under the sea.
There were so many types of fish and coral everywhere,
just a whole world we never see.
I had a moment of pure joy and reverence while snorkeling,
because it's amazing that God created such a beautiful world for us to enjoy.
I wish I had bought an underwater camera for pictures, but
oh well, next time right?
We were famished once everything was over,
so even though we were told we could snorkel more,
Linking up here today!
