Call me Ishmael….

I have just returned from my voyage of the seas. You should have seen me….my gaze fixed on the horizon….my face misted with seawater….my temporary tattoo fading in the sun….

I just returned from my cruise with the fam. We didn’t pass the equator so I didn’t get my ear pierced, but I did get a cool temporary tattoo to mark my maiden voyage on the Carnival Ecstasy.

All in all, the trip was smooth. The waters were fairly smooth until the last day when it was rather rocky. My daddy and mommy said they saw people puking – pretty nasty if you ask me. My folks were a little concerned with how I would react to the motion and the ship in general, but I got my sea legs pretty quickly. As a matter of fact, I believe I got them before my mom, dad, or grannie. I was wanting them to run all over with me and they kept sitting down trying to relax.

I’m not sure what I enjoyed more – being on a huge ship in the middle of the Gulf, not going to school, spending so much time with the family, or being able to sleep with mommy and daddy. Whatever it was, I loved it.

We stopped in Progreso, Mexico (Yucatan) the first port. We rode on a double decker bus all over the city. It was pretty neat to get back to my Latino roots. And daddy was right, he is average height for a Mexican. I’m guessing no one in Progreso knew I was Hispanic. They just took me for your everyday gringo.  After the bus tour, mommy, daddy, grannie, and I went to grab something to eat on the beach. This was the first time I had ever been on a huge beach and I can’t begin to tell you how cool it was. I made sand angels – yes there is video, but not sure daddy will let that get out into the public eye.

Our second stop was in Cozumel, Mexico. This was a little nicer. The whole family headed to Paradise Beach and chilled out together. This was a lot of fun because daddy and I played in the sand. We dug tunnels in the sand for my toy 4x4s to drive through. I’m not sure, but I think daddy enjoyed that time together just as much as I did.

Anyway, it was a great time. I will post some pictures later, but here is a video you can watch…..btw “Call me Ishmael” is the first sentence in Moby Dick for those of you that wondered where that came from.
