The vacation sent from heaven continues. We are really loving our time at the resort (I plan to do a full review when the trip is up), and Iâ€™m already starting to count down the days until we leave with dread. We have until Friday, so Iâ€™m going to try to soak it all in.
I wish I could say this has been a very â€˜healthyâ€™ trip, but I knew it wasnâ€™t going to be healthy when we booked it. Heh. Thereâ€™s been lots of laying around, drinking fruity cocktails all day and all night, and little exercise beyond walking down the shoreline or chasing after badminton shuttlecocks. Not that I would have it any other way â€“ lots of R&R is just what the Holistic Doctor ordered.
Speaking of the Huz, there was a bit of a change of pace yesterday â€“ the Husband and I went golfing. Well, he golfed, and I drove the cart. He played at La Cana Golf Club, which Iâ€™m pretty sure is my idea of paradise perfection. The grass was so green; the sea was so blue.
Letâ€™s seeâ€¦ what else?
We bought inner tubs!
… And the casino barâ€¦
However, at least for me, gambling + alcohol does not mix very well. I canâ€™t count sober, let alone after drinking a Pina Colada. Maybe tonight our luck will turn around!
And we located an awesome spot for lunch.
This very large buffet is at the sister (kid- and budget-friendly) resort. There are so many options to choose from that everyone in our group can be satisfied. Plus, thereâ€™s a nice breeze coming off the ocean so itâ€™s not too hot, either.
My plate: half a grilled cheese, rice, carrots, green beans, potatoes, and fruit. It works, but Iâ€™m seriously jonesinâ€™ for some tofu or beans.
â€¦ But, you know, ice cream does the trick!
So â€“ thatâ€™s what weâ€™ve been up to so far! All in all, this vacation is great. Itâ€™s fun to spend time with my BFF Sarah and her husband, the Husband and I are enjoying ourselves, and I feel rejuvenated. I have some MAJOR deadlines for the book looming when I get home, so feeling rejuvenated is nice.
The Husband has conned me into going for a run, so Iâ€™m going to put on some exercise gear and hit the road. Hopefully, I wonâ€™t melt!
