Adventures in Cruising- Day 4 and 5

On Tuesday morning, we awoke to the beauty of Cozumel, MX. The sea was bluer and clearer than I have ever seen. Yet, there were hints of emerald green scattered throughout. Unbelievable!

We had not made any plans for shore excursions which ended up being good because the winds were really high and most of the excursions got canceled. When we got off the ship, we realized we were docked next to another Carnival cruiser, The Triumph. Well, next to that ship, the Fantasy looked like MiniMe! It was about half the size.We decided to just do a little shopping, but when we got to the town, The Big Monkey asked a local what they thought we should do. He suggested we rent a Jeep and drive around the island so we did just that! At the rental car booth, I turned to BM and said "Boy, I've never driven on the wrong side of the road before! Hope I don't mess up!" BM looked at me shocked as if I was a total idiot and I then said "Gotcha!" I'm sure it is much funnier in my head than in writing, but I'm still talking about it.We drove around and stopped when we saw something beautiful or interesting. At one point, we even changed into our bathing siuts in the Jeep and jumped in the water. We're just two crazy kids, right! haha(Big Monkey finally was successful in his quest for a cold coconut)

It was my first time driving a stick shift in quite a while and I did get to embarrass BM frequently by stalling a million times.(Semi phallic looking bunch of bananas)

We returned our Jeep and headed back to the ship just in time to see all the drunks running to make sure they didn't get left behind. It was pretty funny to watch several of them pass out from their excursion to Senor Frogs'. BM called them "silly tourists!"

The next morning we got up to do yoga again and just vegged out the rest of the day.

Great trip and I would suggest it to anyone who wants a vacation where you don't have to worry about planning anything or thinking at all.(Towel piggy, Day 4)
