so hot, hot, hot

today we went on a cruise - started with some scuba/snorkeling - then headed to a beach - then had an open bar on the way home.. we had a good time - but we were a little over being on a boat by the end of the day.. today was very warm - and we were all glad to come back to the condo and shower off our 17+ layers of sun screen.. –

the crew - so happy - before everyone got sick..

it is now mid week - and we are having too much fun.. last night we 'crashed' a karaoke night at our resort.. ben even got up and sang me a song or two - we had everyone up in the place dancing -we made lots o' new friends- it was a great time..

today - we spent the whole day in the 'jungle' - on a zip line tour.. this tour boasted to be on the actual set of the classic film 'the predator'.. we had an amazing time - zipping through the jungle at 60 miles per hour

waterfall on the set of 'la predator' - funny i don't remember that being in the movie

after that we toured a tequila farm - learning all about the fine art of making tequila - and then sampled many different kinds..
