*** Our Cruise Along the Mexican Riviera ***

Part I

November  2008

Holland America Oosterdam

Our trip was a 7-day cruise, leaving San Diego's port on Saturday evening, with stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta before returning to San Diego the following Saturday.

And we're off...

This is the forward view from our stateroom deck

While in Cabo we swam with Dolphins. That was very cool!

Ever touch a dolphin? They feel like rubber.

Maria Olga enjoys a wet kiss

As long as we're playing with dolphins, how about some live iguanas?

Not to be outdone, I also have my moment with these little green dinosaurs

(and yes, the one on the right is wearing a Santa hat)

Oh, we're having so much fun...

Fingers crossed...

... nothin' to it!
