I'm NOT Coming Back!!

I've found paradise....and I'm NOT coming back!!


Yes...the temperature gauge says it's hot, but NOT LIKE THE VIRGINIA KINDA HOT! Keyword...NO humidity--and I'm lovin' it! I can sit by the pool (under the umbrella of course) and NOT break a sweat...oh, I'm sorry--Southern Girls "Glow"! Sadly I saw a lady yesterday who either didn't use sunscreen...never been in the sun or didn't use an umbrella~ouch!

This is the Lazy River...where you can grab a raft and float around and around all day long, I'm still trying to figure out how to keep my knitting dry.

This is a view from the pool area looking back towards the hotel...breathtaking...Canna Lilies, Bougainvillea (I have one but it doesn't look like these...I need to download the picks from the second card) and Hibiscus everywhere!
And last but not least...

This is a night shot of the pathway to "The Spa" where I had my massage today....yes, I did it...and I'd do it again! (They were having a special)
Well, we've been here for 2 full days...and haven't left the resort...which also means I haven't visited my yarn shops yet! Of course, Sunday was recovery day from the *day* of flight and today most of them were closed. Tomorrow's plan is to venture out.
More to report later....

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'

"It's a dry heat" :) I know, it really is. I've been in the Texas desert enough to know it really is.

I say slather on the sunscreen and hit the lazy river sans knitting! Somethings are worth a little knitting break...

I can't wait to hear the yarn store report! and YEAH on the massage!

111 degrees probably isn't real easy to work with spinning or knitting. Are you SURE that's paradise!?!

Looks like you are having a nice break - enjoy.

Carole Knits said...

That looks like a fabulous spot!

Oooh, you are living the high life. The resort is gorgeous. I wouldn't leave, either, unless it was for a yarn crawl. That's a different story. Have fun and enjoy the dry heat.

Yes, it sounds like paradise! ENJOY! You all deserve it!
(((hugs)))

111ºF -- reminds me of my time in Palm Springs, CA. Dry heat or not, it's still HOT! Of course, I was working and not lounging by the pool, unfortunately, so I didn't enjoy myself like you are! Have fun at the yarn shops -- looking forward to reading about them!

I think I should learn to hide in your suitcase when you travel. Great photos!

Sara said...

Wow, I think it looks like you are having a fab time already!!! My brother lives near where you are, maybe you should pop in for a cup of tea while you are there!! ;-)

OK, the lazy river is to die for. And let me know if you find some way to keep your knitting dry.

Happy Anniversary!! And Scotland next year--wow! Very cool!

Sorry I've been away for so long--Girlfriend's school year just ended and we have some time to relax, finally! We're going camping on Thurs!! Yay! Enjoy your trip!
