We slept in a little this morning – felt good. Today is going to be a nice relaxing day. We had breakfast at one of the buffet restaurants – always good.
We then headed off for a couples massage at the spa. The treatment started by them asking us to walk into a small pool filled with ice cold water. I marched right in – WOW…VERY cold. Candace, being much smarter than me, did not go in. We then spent about half an hour swimming around in the spa pool and hot tub.
We dried off and laid down on the cabana bed to await our turn with the masseuse. I fell asleep – usually do. I’ve been blessed with the talent (or skill, or curse?) to be able to take small naps basically it will. The massages were really good, very relaxing.
Then it was off to the pool. Candace said that she wanted to ‘see how dark she could get,’ she usually likes to stay in the shade, because it literally only takes minutes for her to get a tan line, but this afternoon we both jumped in and meandered around the snaking pool for about an hour and a half, we love spending time together, today we definitely accomplish that.
on a separate note – to my amazement, I’ve been mistaken for a local three times so far, all by locals. The first time, the guy told me I look like Alex Rodriguez. Not sure if I buy that. Matt Damon maybe…
We ate dinner at Spice- great sushi and meals, however we both had to give up on the chopsticks and asked for forks.
We’re both still too shy to actually participate, but it’s fun to watch and sing-along from the safety of your chair. There was one dude that did an awesome Elvis and Bruce Springsteen, he obviously does a lot of karaoke back home… And another guy ( who I dubbed Spandau Ballet guy) that sang and obscure Spandau Ballet song (Gold.) odd choice, but he nailed it… We wrapped up our evening with a walk on the beach, as well as Candace giving me a couple of dance lessons while looking at the stars and listening to the waves break on the beach.
Beautiful girl, beautiful beach, beautiful life.
