The two RV Gypsies bought their cruise ticket and waited in line for the boat to arrive. The boat arrived 1/2 hour late because they had to send for a bigger boat than originally planned because the morning trip was cancelled due to fog, and there were too many people for the afternoon cruise and so they needed the bigger boat.

The sea caves are on a full page by themselves and can be reached through the link at the bottom of this page.
