That's what you do at the beach
Gail was feeling better today, whether despite or due to the meds from the doc so we decided to go check out the hotel’s beach club. Armed with books and masks and snorkels we headed out in the van for the 5 minute ride to the beach. Amazing what photographers can do for travel brochures. The club turned out to be a bunch of beach chairs and umbrellas squished together with a nice fellow happy to hand out cold beer or whatever. The good news was that we got there early so got the beachfront seats and lunch was provided within an hour of the designated time.
It’s amazing what sitting by the ocean can do to one’s frame of mind. We stared at the water for a while, watched the other tourists, talked to the various birds that came looking for snacks, checked out the tourist wares offered to us, and declined having our hair braided numerous times. No ride on the banana boat either. In between we read our books, took a dip, and chatted with yet another couple from Saskatchewan. A large tug used to help the cruise ships dock pulled in along with a small navy boat. Oh, and of course, Fred took pictures. A short walk back to the hotel and its time for a glass of wine and nap before dinner.
Maybe the change in mindset is starting to kick in. On the way back we found a great deal on special mugs for all our friends back home.
