But The Atlantis was different. Yes, it was a tiny tube, but there were portholes lining both sides. There were seats in the center facing the portholes. I was so fascinated with the ocean scene that I forgot about being 100 feet below water. We saw all forms of ocean life; sponges, corrals, all kinds of colorful fish and a sting ray. There was a sunken ship, a mine sweeper, that had been placed there to create an artificial corral reef. As we passed the ship we saw a number of scuba divers exploring the area.

I would have loved to have spent more time exploring the ocean floor, but we had to surface to allow another group of lucky people have their turn. As we surfaced, "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine" was played, and of course, there were forty some people singing along as we climbed the ladder to the welcoming blue sky.
Ray wanted to stop by The Three Amigos Cantina for some nachos and a margarita. This place is modeled on the movie, "The Three Amigos". The server suggested we pay one dollar more per drink and get a larger size. Ray was shaking his head no, as I was saying, "Go ahead." Ray had already ordered one of their special 'El Guapo' shots called Viva Amigos. I should have listened to Ray. I am not much of a drinker of alcohol, and this one was a bit much for me. Needless to say, we retuned to the ship where I took a nap.
The evening ended (for us) with a Blood, Sweat, and Tears concert. Bo Bice was superb in singing the lead. He sounded like David Clayton Thomas but delivered the songs in his own style. I had forgotten how much I like their music. Ray got to hear me sing along 'You Make Me So Very Happy'....a song I sing often to him.
There is still much to do tonight, but I am going to bed before midnight for a change. Tomorrow has even more activities, concerts and fun. Here are a few pictures from the last couple of days.
