14: Progreso, Mexico
16: They call it a dinner party for a reason!
17: The cheese throwers from above at the past passenger party. | Richard was sick on his birthday so he got supper in bed. | Birthday cake... a day late!
18: We took a Mexican Limosine to Carlos and Charlies beach to snorkel and eat lunch....... Some of the girls walked over to see the pool at Paradise beach.... It lived up to its name!
20: This was the coolest excursion! We saw a stingray, some barracudas, starfish, sand dollars and a gazillion fish. If only we could swim as deep as our guide! He was going through caves and blowing big bubble rings!

30: It was our last night on the cruise... or it would have been... if it hadn't been for the fog!
32: Saying goodbye to the Barricks | The fog made a crazy halo around us when we looked in the water! Do you see it?
33: Waiting for the fog to clear! The port of Galveston was closed because of the fog so we got an extra day out of our cruise! Not a bad deal! | Our waiter found us and gave us HIS order
34: GOING HOME | When the fog cleared out, we counted 57 boats around us! | We couldn't pull up to the Carnival pier so getting back to our cars proved interesting! We had to be shuttled back to the parking lot. They had 4 shuttles! Oh dear!
35: The End
