Cruise Part 2

It's been long enough, right!?
I actually have found a moment to sit down and record our second day of our week-long cruise. Wyatt is sleeping and Lilly and Owen are currently not fighting (although that could change in 2 seconds...we'll see)
On the second day, our port of call was Costa Maya, Mexico. We were actually quite disappointed by this port. It is probably a new "cruise" port therefore the city is only inhabitated by locals who commute in on days that cruise ships dock. When the cruise ships are gone, the city is vacant. When we got off the ship we hired a company to take us out snorkeling. We had our own private tour guide, Gaby, who took us out on his boat (which probably would not pass any safety rules in America). Once out at sea, we all jumped in with Gaby and we swam around and saw some pretty cool fish. Clarke was the only one who had never been snorkeling before, so he enjoyed it. The rest of us however have snorkeled in seas that were FILLED with colorful fish, turtles, coral, etc. Needless to say, we weren't that impressed, but we all still enjoyed it. After snorkeling, we headed back to the cruise port for some shopping and then back to the boat.

Here we are with the starfish that Gaby found on the bottom of the ocean. It was probably the coolest thing we saw on our little excursion.
