At the next port, Huatulco, Mexico we just planned a beach day. It was a good call as the beach is literally within minutes of the ship dock. We just grabbed a table under an umbrella and sucked down some beers and noshed on nachos. A few of the crew were taking in the sun at the beach as well including our assistant waiter Robert who stopped by for a beer.

A guy was renting Jet Skis and also giving rides. Patti decided she wanted to go for a ride but I was a bit to drunk to drive :) For $20 he took her out for a wild ride around
the bay and out beyond the bay. She had a great time and was all smiles when she got back. Steve and I waded into the water for awhile to cool off. The water was not as
clear as I expected. Not sure why exactly. I don't think I want to know!

We also met some of the Cruise Director staff enjoying some time on land.

We got some sun, waded in the water and drank some beers. In the end it was a nice relaxing day.
