This was my tooling around doing nothing day, as Tammy and Holly are flying in as we speak. I was up before dawn and sat around reading a magazine and the Blackberry for a few hours before heading out to get. My. Papaya.
I am sorry to throw a consumer rant in here, but it has to be done. I am not much of a sandals person. I just wear gym shoes when I am really going to be walking. But it is so nice outside that I went into The Walking Company at the shopping center up the street and dropped $50 on a pair of slides that the lady had confirmed she tried herself and it was “like walking on air”. I had blisters all over my feet in two hours. FAIL.
I had lunch in a little tapas cafe. As I started to eat my pasta and pitas and hummus and Tahitian limeade it hit me: I ate here last year and had ordered the exact same thing.
And here is How Spoiled I Am. There was too much noise in the open air lobby where I like to read (Note to the Marriott – if you put the free wi-fi in the sleeping rooms, the working people might not sit outside and tick us all off with their cell phones. You lost my bar bill, anyway.) so I went back to my room. Housekeeping was there. So I checked Tammy and Holly into their room and sat on their balcony for half an hour. Then I felt bad and went to the little grocery and bought them water and banana bread.
I have taken no pictures today, as I barely set foot off property. But I have two more magazines down and I a good idea of where to go for Happy Hour.
