    It was fun. She's not a gambler at all and doesn't really like casinos so the fact that she got paid quite well for her time is a good thing

    DAY FIFTEEN

    Started early on the beach, went to owner's meeting & stopped at owner services for deed & owner cards for my SsIL, back to the beach. Pool & bingo (mom won an Aruba Aloe gift certificate & $10) & pina coladas, showered, dressed for dinner - same old day!

    We went to West Deck for dinner, ordered a whole bunch of appetizers for everyone to share. SIL Ann loved the homemade hot sauce. They met up with a local friend and went to hang with her. We all went back to LC - boys went to play on computers in the mezzanine, Rich, my mom & I went to Glitz. Rich lost his winning from the last Glitz visit (fine, no money out of my pocket) and I won $65.

    I can't believe this is our last full day on the island!

    DAY SIXTEEN

    Determined to get an early start & spend the entire day on the beach & I slept in till 7! Made sandwiches & snacks to take to the beach & headed down. My sister in law was already there.

    Did the normal beach till 1:45, pool & bingo for the afternoon, Showered, dressed for dinner. We left about 90 minutes early so we could drive around and love on the island a bit for our last night. Went up to the lighthouse & drove around Gold Coast area & Arashi - saw Lizzardo's house - it's so nice and in a great area - I wish we had the cash for it!

    Went to Madame Janette for our last night on the island tradition. I asked to substitute the protein (steak for chicken) and was told no, they don't have chicken. I asked to speak with someone, manager, Chef Kasi, etc. and was told that Chef Kasi has not been affiliated with MJ's in a very long time? Guess I missed that news somehow. Or forgot? Anyway, told the server I really wasn't interested in any of the meals and may just order a double portion of the chicken Caesar salad app, the server said "Why not just order grilled chicken?" Because you said you don't have chicken! Can't I just order the grilled chicken with onion, mushroom & cheese? He said he wasn't sure. I asked that he go speak with whomever and come back and let me know if there was a problem. My "chicken ala burgerloin" was amazing! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

    Came home singing songs in the van and stop into Glitz to cash in all my tickets and now I'm packing & doing laundry to get ready to leave paradise tomorrow.
