Running through Cozumel (in pictures)
I’m home! We hopped off the cruise ship around 8AM yesterday morning, just in time for me to throw on a dress and head to the office so I could
catch up on work watch the Boston Marathon : ).
Before I jump into a picture fest from the cruise, let me just confess that I did very little running — only about 3 to 3.5 miles each day. The wonderful running track on the ship is along the top deck and while the views were awesome, the winds were a killer! We’re talking blow-you-off-the-boat-scary winds (or maybe I’m just dramatic?).
The gym has state of the art treadmills which are great, but I ended up getting really seasick while running. The gym is at the front of the boat and you feel every. single. wave. I was pretty much the only idiot trying to run, every one else was walking while holding on to the side rails.
All in all I ran about 15 miles last week, which means my legs should be well rested up for a big week of running this week!
… Okay, now prepare yourself for a lot of water shots! I am obsessed with how blue and clear the water is in Cozumel. These were all taken with my new-ish DSLR camera!
Testing out the life boats, in this beautiful, perfect, amazing blue water.
It actually never occurred to me that you would need to test lifeboats, but now that I’m thinking about it I’m really glad to know they do test them!
View of the shoreline from our boat:
Little shop… there are actually tons of little shops exactly like this one all over Cozumel. The first time we went I was super excited about all the handmade toys which I thought were made locally. But then we went to Jamaica and Haiti and they had all of the same exact little toys which was very disappointing.
Aaaaand one final water shot because I will never cease to be amazed at the color:
You probably noticed that there are no shots or Adam or I on this cruise. Sadly, Adam came down with something and wasn’t/isn’t feeling well. He’s normally not in a picture taking mood, but really wasn’t on this trip.
Oh well, sometimes on vacation I get caught up in living through the camera lens and forget to enjoy the moment. This time we left our cell phones and cameras in the room and just enjoyed whatever we were doing,.. with the exception of pulling out the DSLR in Cozumel so I could take some practice shots of the blue water I am obsessed with.
Do you ever get so wrapped up in taking pictures you forget to enjoy the moment?
Do you get seasick?
– Adam does and takes medicine for it. I don’t like taking medicine unless I have to, so I skipped it and just ran until I was about to puke 😀
PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DAD!!!!!
