Class News: Camilla Ramborger's Photos - Cozumel & Visit with Diann Russell Kelly

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, the 72ers...

Bill and I joined TSDers for TSD Deaf Cruise to Mexico October 27-Nov.1. We enjoyed visiting Progreso and Cozumel. Cozumel is a very nice place to visit and shop.  It has a beautiful private beach several miles from Cozumel where some of us did snorkeling. Then, we stayed at the beach for an hour. Had a lunch and swam at the beach with several floats.  Real fun!
After the cruise, we drove up to Mississippi to visit Diann Russell Kelley for 2 days and had a blast. I wish we could stay there little longer, but we had to leave for Spartanburg in time for a  babysitting time with my Cassidy grandsons on the weekend.  I am a full time mawmaw.

1).  We on Carnival Elation left New Orleans for Progreso and Cozumel, Mexico.

2).  We were sailing to beautiful Cozumel beach

3).  I snorkeled for almost an hour.  Bill withdrew it due to a sudden attack.

4). After a photo of snorkeling, I stood in a natural and relaxing position in a very windy evening.

                                         5).  Me and Diann Russell Kelly at Olive Branch, MS

6).  Diann and me at her nice home.
