Day 2: Ensenada. Breakfast on our balcony. We ended up with a lot more food than we'd intended to order.

The Carnival Paradise is docked next to us. The Paradise originally didn't allow smoking but apparently that experiment failed.

The South end of downtown Ensenada. The main shopping/drinking district is off to the left.

Teri was having fun playing with the camera. This is a long-distance shot of a couple of seals that Teri took by holding a pair of binoculars in front of the digital camera lens and shooting a photo through the binoculars. Those ropes are holding the back of the ship against the dock.

Another shot taken through binoculars. In the foreground are some seals swimming and in the background is the rusting hulk of the derelict S.S. Catalina, the Great White Steamer that used to shuttle people back and forth from San Pedro to Catalina Island in the 50's, 60's and 70's. It has been in this half-sunk abandoned state for over seven years.

I'm in the hot tub. Where's my drink?

Ah, the waiter has just brought our drinks. Teri really liked the half pina colada, half strawberry daiquiri drinks.

We're leaving Ensenada at sunset and I am back at the front of the ship on Deck 12. Although it looks like we might run aground, the ship has moved away from the dock and is actually rotating 180° in-place to head out of the harbor so there is no forward motion at all. I love the colors in this photo.

Formal night (although technically I am not dressed formally). This is at the Captain's Cocktail Party. I have a Bahama Mama in one hand and a glass of sparkling wine in the other. Both free at the party. But neither one tasted very good. We left before the Captain came out to speak.
