more of an artful voyage

Thursday, October 15th....we are in Puerto Vallarta.  I went off the ship without a real plan, but figured I'd wander around, see some sights and do a little shopping.  Hah!  Between the heat (oppressive) and the shopkeepers (waaaay too aggressive), I lasted about 20 minutes and returned to the ship.  I think these are the only photos I took outside!





So, I spent most of the day in the art studio, which was fine by me!


Working on a mini album


I don't know why I always look so serious when I'm doing art.  Honestly, I AM HAVING FUN!!!!!


You never know what you might see in the art studio.  LOL!

Anyone who has cruised before knows that you can expect to see some "towel art" in your cabin every night. Here are some of my cabin steward Dave's masterpieces:


a swan

cool elephant

if anyone knows what this is, please tell me.  whatever, I thought he needed a glass of wine.

bad photo, great bat!

Tomorrow Cabo San Lucas in the morning, and Wendy's short class at night.  Til then.....

Eileen, I'd like to know what that animal is too. Couldn't figure it out.

I love seeing the cruise through different eyes. You're doing a great job of documenting all the fun.
I had totally different towel animals so I can help with the mystery animal.

I, too, thought that little towel guy(bird?) was having an identity crisis and needed a drink.
My roomie and I spent the day at the beach and hardly had a moment of peace due to the vendors! I could put up with it just to be at the beach!!
I sure am enjoying your documentary.

Looks a little like an ardvark! But with arms. LOL! Great pictures, I love the bat too!

My guess is an anteater. You made the right move in going back to the studio, although that old ship did look intriguing.

Good morning Eileen :) I've looked and looked and looked and STILL can't figure out what that animal is . . .but yes, he DID need a drink *hee hee*

And YES, the shopkeepers WERE pretty aggressive weren't they? Now that we're back, I was thinking that I passed on a few things I wanted because I was getting confused with which store I had talked to who IN! sheeeessh

Like someone else that commented, I am enjoying reading your view of the journey *smiles*

I too am enjoying seeing what you saw on our cruise...You're doing a great job. I wish I had the time to start a blog!
I was thinking he looked like an anteatter.

I think that towel creature is an Anteater! Pose it down on all "fours" without the glass of wine between it's legs and you may see an Anteater, too... or drink the glass of wine and the rest of the bottle and it will look like an Anteater! Funny....

Erin Glee said...

Hmm... I just read Alison's comment and think I left out a bunch of "T's" ... ooops!

Nancy said...

OOOhhh... you got a great photo of that ship! May I use it?
You got different towel animals than we did ... love your aardvark (lol).

Hey Eileen, I don't blame you a bit for going back to the ship. I can't stand those pushy sales people either. Sounds like a perfect day.

Elena said...

LOL!! Puerto Vallarta merchants are VERY VERY aggressive!! That's when knowing spanish comes in really handy! You tell them a thing or two (or even three if they really piss you off) and they leave you alone! Looks like the art studio was the best place to be anyway!

It's the Aflak (sp?) duck... look at those huge webbed feet? Close maybe, don't you think? Marita

We had the cool towel character with the glass of wine too ... only ours was lounging on the bed, propped up on the pillows, wearing sunglasses, and had the TV remote within reach! He was my favorite!
