A Great Start To The New Year

Bob  had to present at a conference last week and I decided to tag along.  {He didn't have to twist my arm!}  It does make it difficult to start all of the healthy living habits and exercise I'd like to start when you begin your year with vacation, but I'll take it!

We had a lovely suite, and I was loving it even though we arrived late at night.
 Our bedroom is through the door next to the TV.
 Everything was just lovely.
 We could even see the pool from our 9th floor balcony.
 But look at what awaited us in the morning!  I had opened all of the drapes before I went to bed in anticipation of this view and it didn't disappoint me!
 Sorry this one is so dark, but this is the view as you open the door, long hallway and the ocean at the end.
 You feel as though you are on a ship, with this view out every window.
 Bob worked in the morning and golfed in the afternoon and I did the morning I sat on this balcony with my coffee and book.
 In the afternoon I took a nap here on another balcony.

 This is a view of our hotel, we were on the left end, we had 3 balconies, the one angled one you can see and then there is one to the left and to the right.   They were all very large.

 This is the other thing I did in the afternoon, after I visited the spa, I brought my book out to the beach and read.
 On our last morning we were up early to catch our flight home.  I thought I would catch the sunrise.

Absolutely beautiful!!  I could so get used to this!!!

WOW! I am sooooo jealous! We lived in California for years and I miss the ocean very much! You had a fabulous view...there is nothing like the ocean to bring on the rest and relaxation! Next time...sneak me in your suitcase...I like to read and drink coffee too;)!

What a wonderful treat!!! I keep saying that I'm going to travel with the husband more now that we're empty nesters, and I have yet to do it more than once.

Of course, his business rooms won't look much like your wonderful suite! Plus, he doesn't get near the beach much.

I like you way too much to covet so I won't.
How wonderful!
