Got up this morning and had breakfast at Idle Awhile. French toast and banana pancakes…both yummy!
Headed down to the beach for the day. There was a big ugly cloud hanging right over Idle Awhile. It looked like rain for sure. However, all day and it never moved and we never got a drop of rain. None so far this trip, actually!
Watched as Tom…a guest… built up another sand castle. Did I tell you about the sandcastles? This is the third day now that he has been here and has done some outstanding sand castles. He is an older gentleman that leaves on the beach up in Seattle. He says that this sand is actually very good for building sand castles on. Now…he doesn't do sculptures, just sand castles.
Had our left over pizza from last night for lunch. It was good, even cold. I got some ice cream from a local guy. Today I had a cone with strawberry/vanilla/chocolate ice cream. Yesterday, I had the Rum with Raisin flavor is a plastic cup. Only $150Jamaican and well worth it.
There is another couple staying here, they are from New Joisey. They have twin 5-year-old girls, and are in their 40s. They lady never shuts up! She is CONSTANTLY talking to anyone who will listen. Anyways…she was having a nice long conversation earlier today with another guest from Florida. They were discussing how terrible it is that smokers smoke on the beach. (I am a smoker and am smoking right there as they are having this conversation…but no, I was not offended). New Joisey Lady is telling how she quit smoking just a few years ago, when she got pregnant with her girls. And now she can't believe that anyone would smoke, especially when it says right on the cigarette packs that it can kill ya! In the next breath these two ladies are talking about the ganga they have gotten here, and that they think it is better quality in Miami. Florida Lady is going to try to get some mushrooms tonight, while New Joisey Lady is happy with the ganga.
ALL DAY LONG…I am NOT even kidding you…New Joisey Lady and her husband are smoking there joint. They are not even trying to be discreet about it. I mean…it's cool if that is what you are into. But PUH-LEESE have some respect for others! I mean…there's kids playing in the sand, for goodness sake! But know…whipping out joints and smoking them up like it is no big thing. A couple of times,New Joisey Lady would even put a towel over her head to light up (it was a little windy today.) But…I guess I really can't complain, because someone could say the same thing about me and smoking cigarettes. Whatever. Just wanted to vent about that one I guess.
Took some pictures of the sunset, another gorgeous one.
Headed instead to chill out and change for dinner tonight. We didn't really know where we were going, just started walking south on the beach. And who do we run into?? YEP! Our good friend JONATHON! We just kept on walking…
We decided to eat at the Italian Place, Restaurante De Gino Italiano at the Mariposa Gardens Hotel. It was DELICIOUS! I had the Bolgna Spaghetti and Chuck had the Beef Filet. The filet tasted a little different from what we are used to, but Chuck still ate it all. My spaghetti was wonderful and I ate just about ALL of it…a first in a while.
Walked back to Idle Awhile for another quiet night in
Another perfect day in paradise.
