Day Four...

Thursday January 27, 2011 
Actual Temp: 75/68
Today we landed in Cozumel, Mexico.  We did lots of looking into daytime excursions.  We planned on doing the same one that we did before.  However, when we checked into it  the price had almost doubled.  We were kind of scared about that because of the weather and the way the girls we acting about the ocean, (kind of nutty).  Crazy but they will swim all day in the murky Atlantic but take them to the crystal blue Gulf and they want to get on your head!  So we decided to head out and take on Cozumel all on our own.  We took a taxi cab downtown to the market, we enjoyed seeing all of the stuff and haggling with the natives.  Ansley did some bargaining on her own and did a great job.  Jake and I were proud.  Of course, I went to the Pharmacia….just cause I’m that kind of geek.  We looked for the bombero station but it was too far to walk.  After the market, we hit the mall.  Man it was an uptown kind of mall….think Phipps.  Strange, but there it was!  Obviously we were not there for Phipps shopping so we took a taxi to the ‘public beach’.  We arrived at an amazing oasis including a pool, awesome sandy beach, water trampolines, slides, snorkeling and lots of swimming.  So, if ever in Cozumel, the ‘public beaches’ are Awesome!  No need to spend tons on excursions.  We had a great time and by time we left Ansley Kate was snorkeling alongside Jake.  He was so happy and proud.  Sarah only wanted to make sand castles and the poor thing was purple, but she refused to stop.  She made Rapunzel's  castle, which turned out awesome.  We took another taxi back to the dock and did some more window shopping (and a little buying).  We went and watched karaoke tonight and I really, really wanted to do it but alas, I chickened out.  Then headed back to the boat to get dressed for dinner…. Jake had escargot (which he liked),  At this point I have forgotten what the rest of us ate….seems like all we did!  But I can tell you that Sarah slept right through it all.
