Panama Canal Cruise Day 5, Acapulco

this was the sunset last night before dinner

March 19, 2011
Acapulco proved to be a lot more fun than I had anticipated. We headed for the beach after a leisurely morning and found a spot right away. We had to pay for chairs and an umbrella, but then we had our own personal beach attendant. He took very good care of us.
The vendors were out in full force, as usual. Some of them break your heart, showing you photos of their kids. There were even a few kids who come up to you with those big brown eyes and ask you to buy something. But, really, how many silver bracelets can you buy? They were even selling massages on the beach. NO THANK YOU!
Or should I say, “NO, Gracias”?

The beach was so nice. Perfect air and water temperature. I spent a lot of time in the water and those who know me well, know that I am not a water person. It was so relaxing to just float and swim around. The salt water really helped Mr. Romance. He is feeling so much better now.

After several hours relaxing on the beach, we headed back to the boat to shower and relax before dinner. We are going to try and stay up and see one of the shows on board tonight.
The next two days are at sea days.
