    WaltVB..... I've always had one of these in my pocket playing blackjack and have never had a problem referring to one while playing. Guess the casino thinks they give more confidence and you'll play longer and lose more.

    Yup!... long travel day..... but it was a breeze. Not a lot of sleep last night with the worry and anticipation. Up at 3:30 and Monte was there at 4:30 to get us to Logan by 5:30 for our 7:30 flight...... JetBlue was a couple of minutes late but only a couple late touching down.... DW and I do adjoining aisles and we each had a couple beside us. I had the newlyweds staying at the Hyatt and she had a 45ish couple going to the Divi on her side. Both couples were new visitors and naturally there were lots of questions. Hope we gave them good information.

    Got thru the airport within 30 minutes and took a taxi to the AM and we were in the lobby by 1:30 and our room a few minutes later. It's a superior studio and DW loves it and I think I like it as well as the Radisson. Our door is at the pool so the views are nice and there's not a lot of traffic. We were on the beach about 30 minutes later...... beautiful beach and plenty of palapas available. It was a bit of work getting into the water..... colder than either of us remember... could be the age thing too! A fair amount of flies on the beach.... not too bothersome... but definitely unwelcome.... little mini house fly type of critters. Stayed on the beach, napped, read and dipped in the ocean until 6.

    The staff for Passions starts to set up around 4:30.... and that's a lot of work setting up and tearing down every day just so we can have a really nice sunset dinner.

    Cleaned up and went to dinner at 6:30 next door at Las Ramblas..... only an hour early for our reservation.... no problem... seated right away. The setting was great... but the atmosphere was really horrible...... We were inundated with more of those pesky flies.... It was a real turn off. DW has bacon wrapped scallops, eggplant rotelli (sp?) and a salad with tomatoes they lied about..... said they were beefsteak.... but were really Roma... oh well.... she really enjoyed her meal and I liked what I tasted too. I had a stuffed chicken breast that was very tasty..... but way tough. It's like the breast came from an old fowl. We ended up eating quickly and passing on the relaxed dinner we usually enjoy. Paid the bill and left. Will not go back there.... the flies did us in.

    Walked thru La Cabana and back to the AM.... tucked DW in around 7:45 and went over to the Glitz and played for a bit.... now I'm back at the AM sitting outside telling you good folks about my day! Can't believe I'm ready to tuck in before 11..... but I am.Hopefully more tomorrow.

    rest well CP, you have a busy vacation ahead of you!
    thanks for sharing.

    sorry to hear of the flies

    paul and i had a drink at AM pool bar and the LaCabana pool bar in May and the flies there were bothersome at about 6:00 both times.

    not much can be done about them

    have fun!!!!

    CP you should try staying at Logan the night before. It really is worth the expense. You get a little extra sleep in the morning and the shuttle to the terminal is just 5 minutes. We love it.

    I hope you enjoy your stay at AM and don't have any more problems with pesky flies. We had that issues at Matthews one trip. Went this last trip and it was fine.
