New Year's Cruise 2006-2007 Photo Gallerey

We took a short cruise to Mexico over New Years. Three other couples went with us - Mac and Dava McWhorter, Tim and Martha O'Connell, and Ron and Sandy Grannan. Some of the hundreds of pictures that we took are shown below.

We left Galveston on Saturday, December 30th. The start of the trip was stressful - it took several hours to get into the parking lot and board the ship. And the ship was several hours late leaving. But after that we had a relaxing time. That night we had a nice dinner and saw a fun show.

New Year's Day - At Sea and Cozumel

Because we had left Galveston so late two days earlier, we were still at sea Monday morning. But the weather had turned warm and sunny, so we enjoyed being out on deck. And in the afternoon we arrived in Cozumel.

Tuesday - Progreso

By Tuesday we had made up some time and arrived in Progreso only a few hours late. We went into town, had lunch near the beach, did some shopping and then took a mangrove tour to do some birdwatching.
