Taking a beach walk to wait for sunset

Wednesday, November 9th: Another day in Paradise

Weather: sunny 89F

Route: to the pool

Today was designated as a day of rest for the member couple. The three guests were happy to spend another relaxing day enjoying this luxurious resort. The members had an obligatory breakfast marketing meeting but were free by 10:00, in time to catch the last half of the stretching class. The three of us had already finished our aerobics of choice by then. Since we had all eaten a late, large breakfast, lunch was a late-afternoon grazing meal of tortilla chips, salsas, cheeses, crackers and watermelon.

Somehow we found time for a few games of ping pong amid the afternoon siestas and swimming to the pool bar for drinks. Once the sun lost its intensity we walked on the beach past the Estuary, where we saw more turtles being released by a private party. Young Laddie, the sunset afficionado, was delighted to have yet another beautiful sunset that was quite different than yesterday's.

For dinner we assembled fish tacos adding mole (that's mol-ay) and salsa to yesterday's snapper and rice leftovers. They were messy to eat but surprisingly enjoyable, even with the TV giving final wrap-ups and voting results from yesterday's election. We joked that we should make sure we flew back to the USA before the wall went up (especially me with my old "green card"). The relaxing day ended with an HBO movie -- Australia -- while I multitasked with a crossword puzzle I had been working on at the pool.
