Last night was the first night that we both slept soundly. From about midnight to six, neither of us felt like we even rolled over.
After our usual breakfast- oh, I for got tell you about our usual breakfast. Let me divulge.
The hotel has a lovely breakfast buffet. There is cold cereal, pastries, fruit and also a hot portion. The odd things are: Everything on the cold side is sort of jumbled so that it goes fruit, vegetables, yogurt, salad, more fruit, cheese, meat then olives, cookies, tahini and a dark thick sauce that smells like balsamic, cereal and big bowls of jam with ladles. It's not that the food is odd so much that order makes you confused about what goes with what. The hot bar includes the soup of the day (tomato, broccoli and red lentil so far), eggs and hotdogs. Yes, the same hotdogs that graced our first evening sampler platter. Yesterday morning, Laura broke open one of her bread rolls to find a "surprise" hot dog.

The "beach" is not what we expected. It's really a ladder into the ocean. Also, this man has on water wings.
In our carriage. We got the squeaky one, just like my shopping carts.

I thought this house was so pretty. I love the evil eye set into it.
We took the ferry back and meandered to the shuttle stop picking up some Thai food that's currently in our fridge.
We came back to find our luggage waiting for us. Four days since we landed!
It's only 7 pm here but we are in our pjs. Clean pjs that weren't dried on the balcony.
