Mexican Riviera Cruise, Day 2: Day At Sea

Overnight we sailed South East across the Pacific Ocean, parallel to west coast of the Baja California Peninsula, passing the islands of San Benito and Isle Cedros. The Isle of Cedros is a large island formed by a volcano, and has tree covered mountains, which was quite beautiful in the morning sunrise. We will be at sea all day Monday, headed for Cabo San Lucas.

Above: It was a spectacular "burst" into the sky. The morning sun is my favorite...I like the way it illuminated the ship.
The Fruit & Vegetable Carving Demonstration

Above: Mid-morning I went to watch a demonstration of carving fruit and vegetables. These guys work fast and made some cool the dragon-fly and the penguin. I told Mrs Danvers she needs to learn this skill.
This evening is formal night, so tomorrow morning I'll try to post a few photos.

Day two: Today I went up on the Promenade deck to observe the morning walkers doing their laps and see the beautiful coastline of the Mexican Riviera. While on the Promenade deck, I asked Rick to stir the water on the surface of my bowl, so I could enjoy the sea air. The tiny air bubbles filled with the smell of the sea was quite enjoyable, I must admit.

You look a bit chilly, Rick. Do I spy you wearing a sweatshirt?

Love the sunrise and the fruit and veggie carvings.

Oh, I get it now...martini's are best when viewed from the front, but morning tea should be a profile... ;)

I'm glad you are having a great time so far...I'm pretty jealous right now.

I wanna go on a cruise!!

I love it "to observe the morning walkers" as opposed to "walk". Heh.
