Cozumel is an island of
 countless attractions in the middle
of a sea of excitement.
Cozumel, the largest island in México, is approximately 10 miles wide by 30 miles long.
San Miguel de Cozumel is the only town.
It is located on the western side of the island and comprises most of the hotels.
Because of the storm damage to the docks caused by the 2005 hurricane season our ship could not dock  at Cozumel as we did in Key West.
The Enchantment of the Sea anchored in the harbor off shore and we took crowded tenders to the island.
It was a short but exhilarating fresh air trip to the shore in these open air boats.
The damage to Cozumel became
more obvious the closer we got to shore.
Crews were working to get the island hotels and docks ready for the 2006 tourist season.
Once on shore some of us took tours.
Others just roamed around the island.
Everyone enjoyed doing their own thing.
Mary Eberhardt went deep sea fishing while her husband Duane took lots of pictures of her.
It looks like Mary is really good at this sport.
My questions is -- did Duane get to fish too?
Cozumel with its nutrient rich waters attracts some of the best
sport fishing in the Caribbean.
Betty (Moehle) DeWitt and Dean viewed marine life, hurricane damage, and saw spectacular underwater scenes from a unique semi-submersible craft.
Everyone of us was busy doing something!
Sally Smith, Georgia Mattenlee, and Earl Crawford were busy in Cozumel.
Shopping, sightseeing, and picture taking were, naturally, very popular.
"The Two Shirleys" with Ramah, and Cathy toured all over Cozumel.
Hey Ramah and Shirley, I hate to tell you --- but you can't have any pets in your cabin.
Eating in an authentic Mexican environment was a favorite too.
Before heading back to the ship some ladies decided there was time for some last minute shopping.
Can't miss a bargain! Right?
Bags in hand it was time to get aboard the tenders that would take us all back "home".
The tenders were not nearly as crowded going back to the ship as they had been going to Cozumel that morning
When we got back to the ship we discovered some of our classmates had returned early and were enjoying the warm Caribbean February weather.
Glenna asked me NOT to use this picture.
Now I ask you. Would I do that?
Of course I would!
Before we leave Cozumel there is
something else you should see.
Because there is so much to show you it is presented on two pages.
Here is the first page.
