Day 9

... but eventually we had to go out to get on the boat for snorkeling. The boat ride to the snorkeling spot was amazing and relaxing! I got a little sea sick once we anchored, but I just jumped in the water with all my snorkeling gear so I was fine. Snorkeling was cool but I had trouble breathing and my mouth piece was broken.

I used every excuse in the book, and they were good ones! No money, Cam was signed up to take 15 credits that would transfer to the college of his choice giving him a full-year of credits (this one still hurts), I could NEVER ask for more time off from work, ...

... take a two minute walk to the mall and you have everything you need in the area. There are bars and restaurants outside the resorts in the Playa Dorada village. I did most of the excursions but the catamaran looks interesting. I’m nervous on water because I’m not a strong swimmer. It was a thought. The sun tires you out so I’m going to take a nap before supper. Speak to y’all ...
