I had a great day today going ashore in Mazatlan, Mexico. My friends & I hooked a guide and driver and car and toured Mazatlan. We checked out Viejo Mazatlan and all the way down to Zona Dorado. It was a blast. We had fun with the birds along the shore. We would stick pieces of fish at the end of a knife up in the air and have the albatross pick us clean…. Very cool. After our return to the ship I went poolside and enjoyed the rest of the afternoon. As far as the ship’s company is concerned, we are still operating under code red for the Norovirus. What a pain in the neck. Apparently they expect to stay that way until at least L.A. I wonder what the CDC is telling them. They are not going to allow onboard visitors in L.A. That’s too bad, my friend Vicki was going to be visiting. Hopefully we will be back to normal operation soon. I saw Olav today our new Captain beginning for the next voyage. It was nice to see him.
