Boyce Thompson Arboretum

Spent an afternoon at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum, just east of Mesa. Unfortunately I left my camera on the plane while running to catch a connection and had to use my smartphone for these photos. Click the link or the picture to see more photos.

Arizona – Montezuma Castle

Stopped at Montezuma Castle National Monument during a drive from Phoenix to Sedona . Pleasantly surprised by the 1,000 year old pueblo ruins. Very interesting as well as very easy to get to. Well worth the stop if you're in the area. Click the picture to see more…

Cruise 2 – Day 13 – Cabo San Lucas

Was going to go scuba diving but the excursion was canceled – not enough people signed up for it. Went on a snorkeling trip to two different locations. Half the fun was the zodiac boat ride that was very bumpy but also very fast, passing all of the other boats and even jet skis on the way back. Unfortunately the visibility still wasn't very good.

Cruise 2 – Day 8 – Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Day started out interesting as they tried to get the gangway from the ship to the dock. Because of the extremely low tide Deck 3 was too low. The alternative, Deck 7, was too high. Some people didn’t get off the ship until 1pm. Luckily I didn’t have any excursions planned so I just walked along the flea market along the beach. Click the picture to see more…
