Good Times
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Puerto Morelos, Mexico 
Posted By: daacon, 03-22-2013, 06:03 AM

We picked a really nice day to do a Catamaran tour along with some snorkeling out by the reef. Unfortuantley my Canon D10 underwater camera died on day 2 so no underwater shots. It was a great day wrapped up with dinner at one of the local watering holes to celebrate with Margaritas.

The most amazing tale of this day trip I posted in the K5 forum WR works !

The Happy crew just about to take off


The guy on the far left (one of our friends who joined us) lost his underwater camera while snorkeling - we were looking for it on the way back - no luck.


The lovely Mrs. Daacon with our Travel Chicken. Yes there is a long story and history with this He even has his own Facebook page !


Me and CK Saunders (the chickens FB name) enjoying the day


It was an all inclusive tour - rum punch and beer to your hearts content. Too bad we all only had two hands ....


The captain hoping to increase his chances of a good tip brought out some Tequila pops - not the tastiest but fun none the less - and it worked (it was fun and tips are how they make their living more or less )


Back at the dock - squeezing one more drink in


After a day of sailing, snorkeling and drinking - we spend the evening eating and drinking seems to be a theme here yep........you see it was not all about sunrises

Fun sequence, I like photo stories, it saves reading the words.

What's johnny foreigner camera doing in the last shot, you could get excommunicated for that.

That is exactly what I meant by my response to your other post. It is this kind of behavior that causes all the snow. Bad karma. You will be shoveling right through to July.

haha yes my friend shoots Canon. She is the one that convinced me to buy a DSLR. We jab each other all the time - her with the Pentax Can't Focus (she has me beat there for sure) and me with well let's compare images , and WR, and ergonomics and price of glass, and ........

Damn what did I do Susan ? What about the 5 months of purgatory we suffered before we went ? Doesn't that count ?

You really got your monies worth on that ride, what fun for everyone it appears. Those tequila shots can be rough the next day, for me anyway.
