    Wed 12/18. I had a tuff Tuesday night going to bed. All it takes is 5 minutes laying on my back and the hip pain kicks in. So I decided to do some of the PT stretches I was asked to do. When I finished, I laid down and no pain. 30 minutes went bye and no pain but still awake. After 35 minutes, pain came back. I'm like what is this! Got up again and stretched for another 15 minutes. I laid down but this time with 2 pillows under my legs and one bye my left hip so I do not roll over to sleep in the side. 1 hour no pain and then fell asleep.

    I woke up at 8am, no pain but still tired. I stretched, relaxed. Left room around 10am but was limping due to hip nerve pinch. Breakfast Islander Grill nice omlette. I rested at pool for an hour then it was pool and jacuzzi for 1 1/2 hours. At 2pm hung out at Pata Para bar for 2 for 1 pina colada no lunch just 2 drink. Back in room at 230pm for shower and rest. No pain or limping it comes and goes or I guess the water walking,swimming,Jacuzzi helps.

    At 530pm I head out for dinner At Fish house. I did not factor in price of cab so I asked concierge and she said well it's bye airport so at least $28 one way. I was like ouch $60 round trip! I was going to change my mind and just go to Red Fish but I really wanted to try fish house and be out in the marina. I settled on going to Fish House. I did win $30 at Glitz last night so really it's $30 covered going and $30 out of pocket coming is how I saw it. I was glad I went! The host who booked me via FB reserved a nice outdoor table for me with a view as you can see from pictures.I asked for the mixed seafood N meat platter which came with Calamari,shrimp,fish,chicken,steak,sausage,fries and funchi. This platter was huge!!!! Enough for 3 people. I felt like that guy in that show man versus food where your meal is free and you get a t shirt if you finish it by a certain time plus I had a bucket of 6 beers Balashi and Heinken. Well I thought I ate a lot but I hAve what looks like left overs for 2. I mean in the picture it looks like a lot but there is more food deep within. I finished 4 out of 6 beers. The host was kind and wrapped food and beer for me, called me a cab, walked me to cab with a hug and kiss. I was like wow what service. The bill only $68 including dinner,bucket of beer and 15% service fee. So I have food for 2 lunches and 2 beers.

    Great evening,nice cab ride around residential areas and I got to see houses with christmas lights, one of the round abouts had Christmas lights etc.

    I hope to have a pain free sleep and hopefully hit the beach tomorrow.

    I wish that I were back there..........all because of your "story"... minus the hip and back pain.

    Ace.....Peg mentioned about getting a massage.
    I recommend following her advice AND I recommend the spa out back at the Eagle Beach Resort (Tropicana)
    Also too remember to drink a ton of water...it helps pain.

    Ace, you do more things and get around with that hip pain than most without. Thanks again for posts. We will give Fish House a try in December.

    I regret not getting to the Fish House this year. It's a great place. I've seen that platter on their FB page, what a deal!

    From ACE

    Ace just sent this to me to post.

    Las Ramblas @ LaCabana
    This place is a real hidden gem.
    It is delicious and reasonable prices.

    yea but it's too much food! Unless you don't mind left overs. The Concierge at La Cabana mentioned the fish n chips are also great and I think they also have fish tacos.
