Pirate Ship in Puerto Vallarta

   Today's arrival in Puerto Vallarta was at noon.  This was a schedule change as today was supposed to be a sea day on our way to Acapulco.   We docked about a 10 minute taxi ride from town, although there was a WalMart and Sam's Club across the street from the dock.  We decided not to leave to ship and spent a relaxing day reading in the solarium.  There is a therapy pool there which is like a huge whirlpool.  The temperature is in the 90's so the pool is not refreshing.  The outdoor pool is a saltwater pool (not heated) so it's more comfortable but I'm only in it for a dip since the sun is so strong.  

   Just before 7 p.m. the captain advised us that Hurricane Hillary (a category 2) is scheduled to hit Acapulco tomorrow (lucky we're not stopping there) and he would be changing course to travel around it, possibly delaying our next stop.  We were scheduled to be at sea for the next two days so I'll be doing my presentations.  Hope it's not too rough.
