October 2009, I took my first cruise ever on Royal Caribbean, Mariner of the Seas. This was a 5 night cruise to Mexico including Mazatlan, Puerta Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas, arranged by Scrap Map, Starring, Mr. Tim Holtz and Ms. Wendy Vecchi. :-) I travelled with my friends Phyllis, April and Bev. And what a Wonderful time we Had! Unfortunately, I lost my camera in a jitney in Mazatlan, so most of my pictures start after I bought a new camera on the ship. Amazingly, they had very good prices and several choices. I am quite happy with my new Casio digital. I just wish I hadn't lost all of my pictures of Mazatlan and Mostly, of the tropical storm we went through to get there! Rockin & Rollin on the high seas with videos....lost. :-(
Bev took these pictures. The channel was Very Narrow coming & leaving Mazatlan. Here we were "Threading the Needle".
And this seemed a bit odd to me. But every port had armed guards when the ships came in. I waved as Bev took this picture. The guy on the right smiled & waved back.
Next stop, Puerta Vallarta and I have a Camera Again! ;-)
