Story And Details
March 2005

First girls vacation, minus little sara who was saving for her wedding, started in New Orleans for a few days then hopped on our 7 day cruise, then NO a few days again.

Cozumel Mexico
We went just down the beach to Senior Frogs and had lunch. Though we all had base tans we burnt a little, good times.

Roaton Honduras
We walked down to the post office and mail postcards off, bought some souveniers, there was a lovely creek leading out into the ocean where we stopped to take pictures on the bridge. Des and Sara had their hair braided. Most of the touristy stuff is on the other side of the island, so we got back to the boat early enjoyed some swimming and hit the junkfood diner for pizza, burgers, and ribs.

Belize City Belize
We didn't go out of the gated tourist market area except a few blocks to hit the post office. We saw a man swallowing fire. It was 98 degrees outside. Seriously. My Belize tshirt is still one of my fav's, I have never felt such a soft cotton shirt. Knowing now how close we were to Mayan ruins I kinda wish we had done one of the tours.

Cancun Mexico
The water was too choppy to allow anyone off the boat. Many were upset by this, we figured it wasn't worth risking our lives over, and to be frank I was soooo sick of walking around. We had already spent 3 days in NO exploring the french quarter, and did a walking tour of the garden district. We chilled reading, our daily dose of trivia quiz game with our cruise director, and I think this was the day we saw the animal towel folding

Activities
as I mentioned the trivia quiz daily, we went to a couple of shows, the comedian was so funny, I wish I remembered his name!! We played bingo one day, the animal towel folding I mentioned already, and the chocolate midnight buffet. We went to karaoke competition that sara won some champagne, and she was in the talent contest where she sang What's going on by the four nonblondes. She should have won, but the audience may have been too old to appreciate it. We gambled one night too. Lots of hobbit jokes about having either a first and second lunch or dinner nearly every day, and first and sometimes second nap! LOL

New Orleans
This was a few months before Katrina. We had such a blast doing a bar crawl on bourbon street, we picked up matching tshirts left over from mardi gras with like 15 bars on it. We hit every bar that didn't have a cover charge, and substituted a different bar with no cover for the ones that did, so we say we hit them all. Then we went back to our favorite haunt Howl at the Moon. Very much like our local Rum Runners. Sadly I don't think they reopened after Katrina. I was drunk enough they got me on stage singing and dancing, oh my! LOL

SIDE NOTE
if you donate blood you will find out due to malaria risk for which they are still trying to develop a test, you will be deferred for one year if you leave the city limits of belize city in belize, or go to any part of Roaton.
