Cruise Recap: Day three!

Hello loves!
I wanted to blog this morning, but my lazy butt wouldn't get out of bed.
Anyways.. on to day three of our cruise!
Darren & I woke up at 8 on the Wednesday morning because we had an excursion booked to visit some of the Mayan ruins in Progreso!
We got ready fairly quickly & decided to grab some breakfast since we thought we had some extra time to kill... but when we got to the dining room, they sat us next to a window and we saw TONS of people walking towards the pier already. We asked our waitress when she came over to our table what time we are supposed to be out there & she told us we should be there at least thirty minutes before our excursion time... which was in forty-five minutes! Needless to say we jetted from the table, back to our room to grab our bags & darted off the boat!!
We took some pictures on the pier with the boat in the background & it looks fake!

& the ruins we went to I can't even pronounce the name...
Then we had to take a twenty minute [ish] bus ride to the ruins. Y'all, that bus was comfortable & cool! Most of the time those buses suck! Hah.
The tour guide was talking the whole time but we weren't really paying much attention because we were too busy looking out the windows. [and taking pictures]

Once we got to the ruins they gave us a few minutes to check out the gift shop before the tour started & Darren found a Mayan necklace he loved. [he is SERIOUSLY interested in obsessed with the Mayans.. I think it's all pretty neat, but he definitely has me beat on enthusiasm!]
We took off on our tour & listen to the tour guide for about an hour. It was hot & he kept dragging everything out so we were happy when we had our free time to explore! We explored & climbed on EVERYTHING!
[as you can see ;)]
After exploring all the ruins that were close together, we went swimming in the cenote there.. It was really neat! They had these fish in there that would eat the dead skin off of your feet so there were people just sitting along the edge with their feet in the water. My feet are WAYYYYY too ticklish for that so I kept my water shoes on.
One area of the cenote went 160 feet down! Crazy!

I am sososo glad that we chose these ruins to go to! If any of you ever go to Progreso you should definitely pick this one! It was the cheapest out of all of them & from what I heard from people who chose to do the other ones, ours was BY FAR the best/most entertaining!!!
When we got back to the pier we did some souvinier shopping & bought LOTS of stuff for decent prices... But the coolest thing was at the very end of shopping..

They were so beautiful & the white tiger & monkey were super sweet!! The black panther on the other hand was super aggrivated & was whining & scratching the whole time.. Poor thing. It was SUCH a neat experience though!
When we got back to the ship we took a looooong nap then headed to dinner & dessert. Yumm!

After that we headed out to the deck to watch the ocean for a while then headed to an adults only comedy show. The comedian was pretty funny! It was a suuuuuuper short show though, less than thirty minutes so I was a little dissappointed.
After the comedy show it was off to bed!
We had a blast & this was by far my favorite day on the cruise :)

oh & I'm linking up with the lovely Helene for Tell Me About It Tuesday!


I have to slave over the stove now so I can have dinner ready for my man when he gets home! I'm such a good girlfriend ;)
