Vacation

Well, we're back! We had an incredible vacation. We spent 8 days, 7 nights on the beautiful Dawn Princess. We sailed out of San Diego and visited Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan & Puerto Vallarta. This was my first cruise and I have to say, if you're going coastal, cruising is the way to go. It's the most cost efficient and comfortable way to travel.

We were able to connect with my parents who we haven't seen since Christmas. They've been cruising the Sea of Cortez for the last 2 years on their sailboat. It was good to hang with them and we got a free tour of Mazatlan (a value of over $200 according to this crazy local!). That's my dad... They bought the boys some cool gifts, bought us breakfast and they even bought me a shirt! Can't beat that.

Here's what we did on the trip... Eat, sleep, swim, eat, sleep, shop, eat, sleep, swim, play ping pong, golf, eat, sleep and eat.

Here are some photos...


Day 1 San Diego...

Cabo Fajitas! The best meal of the trip and the best part is that they were free! We didn't have plans in Cabo so we decided to go on a time share presentation... yeah, I know. But we got a free trip to the other side of the bay, a bottle of Tequila and $100 to spend in a top notch resort right on the beach. We had the best chips and salsa/quacamole that we had on the whole trip and still only spent $22 of the $100. So we bought a $70 bottle of wine with the rest of the money. What a day!

That looks like an amazing trip, Eric. I can't wait to be able to share memories like that with Brooke.
