Yesterday morning I woke up from the sound of things falling off my desk as the ship slowed down to enter port. The slower we go the more the waves rock the ship. I also heard whale noises! I’m not the only one that thinks it was the whales, but it could have the ship or something, I should find out. But when we got up on deck there were whales! And LAND! It was beautiful watching the moon set over the volcano as the sun came up on the other side of the ship.
We went to Walmart and Starbucks to get a few things and use the wifi. We were all horribly dizzy from being on firm land. I think we are so used to constantly shifting our balance that when we got on land we still swayed back and forth, and couldn’t sit still.
We didn’t have any set plans for the day, so we hopped in a taxi and asked him where to go. He took us to Coconut Island where you could take a walking-bridge out to a island that had remnants of what might have been some kind of fort. We jumped off a platform, and took lots of pictures with my underwater camera. The water was so warm. After, we walked along the beach and explored the downtown area before heading back to the ship.
