A few last minute notes on our escape to the coast:
Overheard at the reservation desk: Customer – “I can accept a frog in my bathroom, but a monkey?”
Overheard by the pool: Eddie’s new playmate to the pool staff – “Towel Boy!…. ”
Feasted: Bed bugs on my hand, arm, back and leg and one bite to the eye that left me with a huge blood blister on the eyelid.
Illegal in the states: The massage I had on Sunday…
Air Marshal Wannabe: Me. When two men sitting two rows in front of me left their seats during the plane’s descent, entered the front cabin and closed the curtain behind them… I instantly hopped up and reported them to the cabin crew behind me and a male attendent raced to the front of the plane. Turns out that the men were “first time fliers”. It’s still unclear what they were doing. (Was I influenced by the white bandana one man was wearing and the loud music coming from his cell phone during the flight?) This could lead to a good discussion on prejudice. What did I think I saw? What did I really see?
Vacation High: My run with the resort Weimeraner. He was on the beach and joined me when he saw me jogging off. This was my first run with a dog. He stayed with me the entire 45 minutes and protected me all along the beach. I ran north instead of south this time and there were long stretches of natural beach and lots of wild dogs living in the brush. I probably would have turned around had he not been with me. But what a joy to watch him play in the surf – run ahead to scout the dangers – hang behind and cover my back when we passed a pack of dogs.
And a few final photos. Here’s a rare shot… Georgie looking (and being) ever so sweet. This child really tugs at my heart. (Tramples it and chews it up as well! )
I woke up one morning, stumbled outside and found Eddie here. He likes mama bear’s hammock!
Eddie was hit by a ricocheting BB from a balloon shooting game in the kids’ club:
She loves me – She loves me not…. ah, my little mini-me is so much herself and it makes me wild with pride.
And in less than 24 hours we went from bathing suits to sweaters. Mom – this one is for you… see, I AM working on it:
Whirling Dirvishes on the agenda this week… stay tuned.
