On Sunday morning, we made our way to the breakfast restaurant and sat under the large arches, overlooking the ocean as we had our coffee and omelets. Yum!
The morning entertainment around here is watching the whales breach and the rays fly. It seems the rays have parasites and the whales have barnacles, so they either jump out of the water to get rid of them or scratch themselves on the sand to wear down the barnacles. Not a bad start to the holiday, a free show each morning. Watch the whales splash.
Sunday morning was cool but we sat by the pool, enjoyed the sun and a few cocktails and waited in anticipation for the rest of the family to arrive. We took a walk on the beach. Leon’s knee was bothering him so it was a short one.
However, we noticed a nice room with a perfect view of the ocean and a full sized hot tub on its balcony. As the day went on, we started to wonder what an upgrade like that one might cost. And of course, time-share resorts are all about upgrades. So we inquired at the desk and long story short, we got the suite with the large hot tub, a full kitchen and living-dining room and the most incredible panoramic view!
We were not disappointed as we managed to see so many great sights from the comfort of our hot tub, including an evening proposal on the beach, a great tiki party that we could not attend since we were not club members and a wedding at the neighbouring hotel, complete with fireworks that although short, may have rivaled our Canada Day festivities. Well sort of…
Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try it
Great! Will do! My mother had friends who used to winter in Cannes instead of Florida. I’ve always thought that would interest me as well. I’ll be looking your up for sure.
Great photos – looks like you had a good time!
Merci Kim! Have a look in the archives at my exchange year in Australia where I taught French! I think you will enjoy it. I enjoyed your blog as well and plan to read your book. Perhaps we could exchange information on how you went about self-publishing.
I’ll be following your blog.
Thanks for visiting my blog and please let me know what you think of my book. I just released a new travel information book as well. As for self-publishing, you comment is timely as I will be launching a How To Write Your First Book in April/May. I’ll be happy to exchange information so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. MERCI!
Thanks and will check out your archives. I’m actually going to publish a book next month on how I wrote and (self) published – it is a process with a learning curve which takes time and patience – what information exactly are you looking for regarding self-publishing – maybe I can help.
I have no particular questions yet Kim. Just looking at the process as I am enjoying writing more and more.
