    Happy 20th. I am glad to see Barefoot prepare a special meal for you with a little advance notice...those little things mean a lot, it means they care about you and your business. Thanks for sharing. Some places really dont get going till after 8pm like you said, which is great because we like to dine on the early side.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    I should have read your entire report! I would have noticed you stayed at the same place. Didn't realize you were there when we were arriving.

    I didn't really turn on the phone much which was nice to disconnect from it.

    The room was so nice. We exchanged through Interval and stayed in room 445D. We stayed an extra night. The last night we moved to a studio.

    Hope your trip was fun too!

    La cabana is in a great location. We love eagle beach and the crowds are less in the area.

    We didn't meet up, I didn't realize they were still there. Had I read entire reports, I would have noticed. Lesson learned - read everything!

    I didn't turn phone on much, it was nice to disconnect and enjoy the time away.

    Were you there as well!

    we love lacabana too!
    did you happen to meet up with jacki and her family?
    they have been at lacabana now for 2 weeks.[/QUOTE]

    Friday

    Went for my normal DD run. Made lunch for the beach. Purchased a float from super foods. Boy the waves are higher today. Feeling a little sea sick. We decide to go back to the pool area. Played another round of Bingo. Not a winner today.

    Drawing a blank on dinner! Oh yes Cuba's Cooking. Made reservations for 8. Nice to not rush. We bumped into a family that was on our crazy flight down.

    Everyone is having a great time and it's starting to come to an end.

    We ordered some excellent chicken dishes! Love Cuban food. Not crazy about their mojitos. Food and service was wonderful though! Thanks Brenda and Kenny!

    We walked around a bit. Made my way in the casino. Played 20 bucks on 25 cent slots. Won a whopping 18 bucks and of course gave it back. Called it a night!

    Saturday

    Ran to DD and started packing to exhange rooms. We are all settled in 427B now. Studio much smaller but will do for the night. We spent the entire day at the pool. Enjoying every ounce of the time here. Back to packing and getting ready for the departure on Sunday.

    Sunday

    Didn't want to get up! Out the door for DD and back to getting ready. Hubby suggested Ricardo's for breakfast. We would have walked but time was short. Took a cab and embraced the view, breakfast and service! Darn, not sure why we didn't try it out for dinner. Made it back to La Cabana. Said our goodbyes to the crew!

    Bully picked us up at 11:45 and made it to airport by noon. No one in line at SW- super fast checking in. The other checkpoints were busy though. At gate by 1:45 or so. Boarded plane and off we go!

    Hope to make another visit soon.
