Finding Mary busy with library matters, I shared my first on-shore adventure with Alden, a member of the SAS faculty whose travel writing classes overflow with budding Bill Brysons. Exploring Ensenada, we kept an eye on Alden's watch. Without my cell phone, I live in a world with no time and watching the ship sail away without us would spoil our day. I need to get a watch. Breakfast and lunch with a special dessert-only stop for flan…that was our take on the touristy town of Ensenada. We rated the local flan a solid 5 on the international flan 10 scale.
