See, the thing about stepping on a sea urchin your first day of spring break is: things can only get better, right?
As coconut flavored anything’s Number One Fan, I was the happiest camper. And despite limping around the island and a dash of miserable weather [including a rainy day in paradise], Nancy and I managed to muster up one fantastic break.
We ate everything.
And then we detoxed a bit with spinach-packed smoothies. We got some very confused looks from patrons as we explained why our fruit smoothies were green. Just pre-gaming for St. Patrick’s Day.
When the weather wasn’t cooperating, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Or rather, the skilled hands of a masseuse.
Facials and massages do wonders for your attitude. I smelled so delicious I wanted to eat myself up. And I was much perkier than when I couldn’t stop glooming about some rain.
I even enjoyed dancing with some of the locals.
Our room neighbors also seemed to enjoy themselves. VERY loudly.
It was obvious that they were enjoying 50 shades of something.
And though we took our tanning very seriously, we made sure to enjoy playing some games. Can’t take things too seriously…
It was paradise. And just what the doctor ordered, escaping winter and snow for sunnier climates. We relaxed, we maxed, and even enjoyed a few adult beverages. Things certainly didn’t get too wild, at least for us.
I can’t say the same for everyone else.
I guess that’s why they suggest pacing yourself….
