We spent the morning on the beach before it got too crazy with tourists and beach vendors. Seriously, if I had a dime for every person that walked by wanting to sell me silver, sunglasses, or braid my hair...
The kids had a ball splashing in the warm ocean waters, and Steve and I enjoyed lounging on chairs watching!
We saw a couple of guys offering parasailing, and asked Olivia if she wanted to give it a try. She hadn't seen anyone do it, but she is adventurous and brave and decided to go for it!
The second she took off, Grant was begging to do it too. I didn't think he was big enough (and was secretly hoping he wasn't!), but he marched right up to the guys and asked if he could do it...and much to my surprise, they said YES!
It was a little sketchy watching him take off...but before long, he too was sailing high above the ocean!
I was grateful to have both kids safely back on solid ground. Here's the guy that made it all happen!
By about noon, the beach was packed and we decided it was time to head on out. There's something about a jam-packed beach that doesn't necessarily scream "rest and relaxation"!
We headed into town to grab a bite, and found some good photo ops along the way.
|Yep, we're classy like that!|
|Cheers to another great day!|
We capped off the night with a breathtaking view of the sunset as we sailed out of Mazatlan and continued our journey southward. Next stop. . . Puerto Vallarta!
