Well, things didn’t exactly go as planned from what was mentioned in the previous post. We arrived on the boat Monday and were handed a piece of paper that told us we were no longer going to be visiting Cozumel, Mexico. Instead we would be going to Calica, Mexico. So as for popping the question on a dive trip in Cozumel… that was out.
After looking through the excursion choices for our new port of call, we decided to go diving in Key West instead. I did a little shuffling and decided to bring the ring and see what happens. Well we dove… but really couldn’t see much more than 5 feet in front of our faces. Jess decided to sit out the second dive so, back to the drawing board.
In Calica we decided to go on a tour of ancient Mayan ruins called “Tulum.” So what better place to pop out a ring and propose, right? We took the tour and then got some free time to explore on our own. We wandered around a bit and took a dip in the Caribbean. Under the guise of taking the perfect photo, I whispered to a random guy walking by that I’d asked to take our picture, “keep taking them, I’m going to propose!” He smiled and said OK. I dropped to my knee and pulled out the ring, to which Jess replied, “Are you serious???” I just smiled and said yes, and then she did too. We then had a celebratory roll of apple Mentos.
We’ll get pictures up as soon as we get back… looking forward to seeing you all and telling you about the trip.
