    You'll love it........ my only negative..... it's such a long walk to the water...... Breakfast is fine..... just not the variety and quantity that I always loved from the Radisson..... buffet is adequate, omelet station ok... lots of fruit..... and service is great. Again, with the lower volume here for breakfast it's harder to maintain a lotta stuff.

    Rained cats and dogs last night and into this morning.... no worries..... sun's trying to break out now. It will be another great day in paradise.

    Beach, Pega Pega and mojitos again... Brights for me.... so... that's our normal day 'til 'bout 5-6....... with lotsa naps.

    Dinner at Ike's last night.. excellent food, service and a really nice atmosphere. DW had a quinoa salad and a couple of apps for dinner and I had a salad and the 'rack' of lamb...... it was actually a half rack of lamb. I hate it when a menu lists 'rack of lamb' and serves less than the full rack.... it's very misleading. I did call it to the attention of the manager.... but only because I had questioned the same dish at the Chop House the night before and they serve 3/4 rack which I would have been ok with...... but 4 little baby chops just ain't enough for a full sized guy.... and the menu should list lamb chops.... not rack of lamb. The manager was quite gracious and comped the 'rack', DW's coffee and my dessert... which was way overboard and I told them so.... but they insisted. Very gracious..... so I way over tipped the waiter.

    My casino visited were to the Hilton to connect with Aruba4ever (Jay).... hooked up with him this time.... hope he won a ton a poker. With the A/C down at the Hilton, I left and went to the Glitz to chase that royal...... last night was just not a good night at the tables or the machines....... still in the black.... but not 4 figures.....

    Beach time.....

    How exciting that the two of you met! Finally! Unexpected! What a pleasant surprise that must have been.

    Thanks for sharing your stories with us, CP! You have such a delightful way of writing! I enjoy every word! <3

    Have fun in the sun, napping, reading at that gorgeous beach in the company of your lovely wife.
