It was a much needed chance to "un-plug" and spend some quality time together away from the everyday routine. Even though our trip was short, we all enjoyed it quite alot and both of Our Boys want to go back so we can explore more next time.
We stayed at an all-inclusive resort which was ideal from the viewpoint of not having to budget beyond the original purchase price for food and drinks. While we were less than impressed with the sit-down restaurants... let's just say that one of the descriptions said the entree was served with a "gray" sauce. When has a "gray" sauce ever been appetizing? And, it takes a real "talent" to overcook a piece of fish AND serve it cold. Yes, the sit-down restaurants were not high on our list of favorites during this trip. However, the service overall was pretty good and we were not without a drink in hand very often during our stay. The buffet was the biggest hit with the kids, and the breakfast was my favorite meal of each day.
We spent our days split between the beach and the pool, where I find just watching the waves come in so relaxing that it allows me to really become calm and let go of the stresses of everyday life. If only I could get away like this every other month or so! Since that is not possible, I still have some fabulous memories and photos to allow me to "drift away" whenever needed.
So, I hope to not be away for so long again and that you'll pull up your chair and a cup of coffee and join me in some on-line conversation about family, friends, food & fun!
