    Day 2.

    First off no night cap last night. After 14 drinks I was done for and went to bed at 8pm. Woke up at 8am! A nice 12 hours of sleep. I went down to deli at 9am to get my favorite breakfast sandwich croissant with bacon, egg and cheese and a coffee. I enjoyed it on my balcony taking in the views.

    I had an issue with the bath tub since yesterday and no one came. Whenever I took a shower, the tub would fill up with water and take a long time to drain. I called again and also asked for a mat as I slipped a little on first day. Thank God for grab bars! It's actually a Jacuzzi tub with a shower head and quite high to get in. Not good for my bad hips. Other units other than towers have a walk in shower. Waited in room for maintenance and no one came so I headed for pool around 1145am.

    I took a water bottle filled with ice with the intentions of filling it up with water to hydrate. Then I modified it to CPs method of hydrating with some brights. So I went to the lobby store and got 2 cans of ballashi. Hey it counts Plenty of water in beer plus the ice. Plenty of pool chairs unlike May trip. I did some stretches in the pool Andrea told me about as I was a little sore. They helped a lot! Next spent time in the hot jacuzzi and back to pool for more stretches. I left by 2pm and back to deli for a chicken salad sandwich and club soda. I love The deli at Aruba Phoenix! You can get a Pastrami, corn beef, rueben, Turkey club, black Forrest ham sandwich. I enjoyed sandwich in room balcony with club soda and Bacardi spice rum I purchased at airport duty free for just $17. Maintenance was in my room running the long snack in bathroom. They took out a lot of bath tissue previous guest must have dropped in tub. They also brought me a brand new bath mat.

    I took a nap at 4pm until 530pm. Got in room jaccuzi and hip soreness went away. I ate dinner at 730pm at the pool grill. Just had some shrimp fajitas and 2 wines. I was having stomach issues on Thursday before trip so I've been trying to stick to fish, chicken and stay away from meat. Hope it gets better so I can enjoy a steak later in the week.

    Now I'm having a night cap Bacardi spice rum on the rocks.
