The end is nigh

Can't believe we are going home soon. I could have done with a bit more time here, but it was still a great get away and just exactly what we needed this time around. We have come here and raced all over the place doing things, but not this time. I'm glad we listened to our bodies and didn't play the tourists.

We had a nice relaxing day. We swam and were the only ones in the pool, then we relaxed in the room and went out to have lunch at a Mexican place we found on our last vacation here. It was great. Next door was a Mexican bakery and we bought some tres leche Napoleons for dessert.

Then we came back to the room for a nap and I read. Around three, we headed out to shop for dinner (Italian meat pockets with pasta, Caesar salad, Capris bruschetta as an app and then our dessert). It went together easily enough and everyone got home early - Wendy was home by four, so we had a great time just chatting with her. What a nice young lady she has become. She showed us a Youtube on Victorian cooking. I'd seen it before, but we went along as it seemed to really please her.

Afterwards we finished Up From Poppy Hill and then headed back to the hotel. We were all tired, us from all the swimming we did and them from their work week. Rose could not stay awake. It's funny to see that they have pretty much paralleled us in that they come home and eat, watch a movie, and go to bed. Like us, they are real party animals. I suspect our wild running around days are behind us.

And, of course, there are photos...

Looking straight up the building - our room is toward the top, three from the left and two down

I love red ti plants

Orchids.  I have the same ones back home.
