Quick add to Day 1:

During our walk it was decided that we must find JD. I wasn't impressed with the prices in town so a trip to Mega necessary because I had never been! So off we walked and while we did not get JD I did get to see carts riding up on their own! This made me night.

Day 3

Seriously dude. Wake UP!


You are in PARADISE!


We do breakfast at Albatross & I get my first mimosa of the trip! Ahhh


I generally have an aversion to buffets and this one proved me mostly right. Noisy, kids everywhere, just general chaos. But the food wasn't exactly the same everyday so Husband was happy. I usually stuck with fruit and mimosas. Threw in a sausage link here & there.

We decide with the mostly cloudy day ahead of us that we'll just walk down to the ferry pier and decide if we want to go to Cozumel. Laying out didn't seem to be in our future today (and we were right).

So off and we went and things have changed in 2 years! There's almost NO beach in front of Fusion!




I decided that this was some sign of fertility (champagne speaks y'all)


So we get to the pier and crikey that's a lot of people in line! And that's a boat. I don't do boats. Husband do you remember the last time you put me on a boat??? Green is so not my color. I need to sit down. There's beer over here you say? Take me to my leader.

Wah Wah's for a bucket it is.


It's quite peaceful here at 10am.


The beer has the proper effect and he convinces me to get on the boat (which I'm thankful for because it really wasn't THAT bad). And off we go.



My one request was the he NOT put me on the interior because I'm convinced it's going to be hot, and full of people and they're going to stank and OH GAWD it's the Vegas public bus all over again. So we get on the back and ah fresh air outside. Beautiful views. And you want me to go where? INSIDE???? There were no seats outside and you can't be standing for the trip. Welp here goes nothing. Wait. Is that air conditioning? And a captainish type seat? SWEET. OK I might survive this. Dos Coronas? Si. Gracias Senora. Now I'm getting the hang of this. Oh we haven't moved yet. Ok. We take off and I can do this, not too bad. Get out in the full on open and oh boy...we're listing a little. Did you just see the spray come over the window???? Downed that beer with a quickness. We're about 10 minutes out, I can see land. I'm going to survive. Oh no. Peanut bladder. Really? Right dang now? Ugh. My stomach is HURTING I have to pee so bad and it's making me feel sea sick. Get to the dock and it's not my fault if you get in my way. Women and children will not be spared in my race for the potty. And there's a line. For the most cringe worthy bathroom I've seen in years. There was no toilet seat. WHO DOES THAT???? Thank goodness we women are adaptable and taught at a very young age how to hover. Relief. Husband is just laughing his Texas tail off when I come out of there but I don't care. I'm happy, my bladder is happy, my stomach is happy. My alcohol stream however isn't. There's blood in it. Let's fix this. I think I see the cure.





I'll leave you with this for now so I can do my wifely duties and cook Husband some din din. Back later!

I had one horrific ride on the ferry to Cozumel one time ... ugh! it seemed like everyone was using the barf bags.

I love your style of writing, very funny!

Great report! Love your narrative.

We're at the RPDC right now with some dear friends of ours, planning to return to Playa next year with our respective families for a week at the GPR. Our kids loved it there in 2010.

Excellent photos also!

Great report and love your sandals. But, I gotta ask, what did you think a ferry was if not a boat? LOL.
