Another great update. Sorry to hear your tummy didn't agree with you after your excursion. :-( But glad it didn't take you too long to bounce back!

Looks like DH and I are in your picture of QC pool.

Well, I had to finish editing the photos, and work gets in the way some, too.

The pictures are done and now I have to finish writing. My copy of "Trip Reporting for Dummies" was overdue at the library, so I had to wait 24 hours to check it back out.

Day 6 - Cabo San Lucas, Part 2

Back to Cabo for a second try at fun. This time I was making DW leave the credit card in the room safe. Not a problem as I later found out. She had CASH! More of my hard earned money to spend.

Up early to feast at Beach Blanket Buffet and then get the "first tender" off the ship. Yeah right. Omlette feasting too a while. However, we came into Cabo just as the sun was coming up, so we had a wonderful view of Cabo in the early light



We were in the Walt Disney Theater early enough that we made the first or second tender off the ship. The WD Theater? Yep. That's where you go to queue up for tender tickets. They line you up in rows, and as the boats come alongside the ship, they send down a couple of rows of people. Very orderly and sane.

The first problem we encountered (not really a problem for us) was that Cabo is an hour behind ship time, so it was about only about 7:00 local time when we made the pier. Too early to shop and party, but perfect to sit and people watch and wait for the people who took our money on Tuesday to show up for our tour.



And wait and watch. Gee, I wonder what ship they came off of. Carnival Spirit was in port also. She arrived just after we did.


And watch and wait.


8:30 local time comes and still no tour operator. Everybody else was out hawking tours and rides, and the person who had our money was apparently taking a leisurely breakfast. Finally one of the other operators said they would take care of it and provided us the tour for the same price we had been quoted. They would work it out with the missing tour operator later.

Finally, we're headed back out into the bay...but in a small boat!


I don't know the names of the formations, so don't ask. Just enjoy the pictures.





Sea Lions and part of another boat


As part of our tour package, they would drop us off on any beach we choose, and pick us back up whenever we wanted. We choose Pelican Beach, with a 11:30 pick-up time. This would give us an hour or so to play. The water was COLD! But that didn't stop the kids.


More water taxis dropping people off, and looking at the fish by the rocks. The boats all have glass bottoms in them for this purpose.


DS11 looking at the camera, and DS9 behind him, checking out crabs in the rocks.


After a while, the boat came back and picked us up. Our prerequisite for next time? Pick a boat with a boarding ladder in the front of it. We made it back to the marina, and cleared security to get on a tender back to the Wonder.




Because we didn't want to be one of those standing on the pier at 12:55 trying to get back to the ship, we came back aboard early. We were in Beach Blanket Buffet about 12:15 for lunch, watching the tender boats come back with people. Each boat was stuffed with cruisers coming back.

DS11 took off to The Edge (again) and DS9 hung out with us around the pool, soaking up sunshine. We wanted to see the Ice Carving demonstration and then go to the Towel Animal class in WaveBands...

Day 6 Afternoon - Cabo San Lucas II

We rejoin our band of merry travellers, having just splashed themselves in the surf and made it back in time for lunch.

The Ice Carving Demonstration was held on the platform under the Funnel Vision screen, at the Goofy Pool. We had a great spot to watch, under the gazebo.





...and DW bagged another character photo. She said Hook was not very nice. Duh, he's a bad guy! C'mon already!


--

Towel Folding 101, with Kat (annoying pitch to her voice)

This is what it's supposed to look like:


After lessons, and trials and lots of help from Stateroom Hosts stationed throughout the crowd to assist, this is what we managed to come up with:

The Relaxing Dog


The Swan


and DW holding up her turke-er--monkey.


Success!

Quick breather, and then the matinee show of Disney Dreams, an Enchanted Classic! Oh Boy!!!

NOTE: Sit close to the stage for better photos. DW didn't quite grasp this for the whole cruise.

Below is a montage of photos from the show:






After the show, we wandered outside on Deck 4 and I took the last picture of calm conditions we would see for a while.



On our way downstairs to get ready for "Semi-Formal Night" and the Captain's Gala, we ran into an surprise guest.



I was looking forward to Lobster for dinner. Yum!




Our serving team.

After a long day, it's bedtime. Goodnight!

Hey we might have to "steal" that picture of our family in Cabo! That's my wife for ya, all about the matching outfits for pictures. We had several people jokingly say/ask us "wonder what ship you came from"? Our usual answer was the "Carnival" of course.

By the way loving you TR!! Brings back good memories!

Donuts

Anyone see what was on the very last tender in from Cabo? Hundreds and hundreds of boxes of donuts. They were clear boxes so you could see they were chocolate covered! I don't think I had my camera, still have not started working on the pics.

Well, DS9 informed me that I had monopolized the Laptop for too long and he was taking it "back." He uses it to play online games against his brother, but all the trip photos and my written journal entries are on it.

As soon as I can get it back, I'll post the rest of the TR.

Now, where'd that little troll hide it...
