    Here it goes....

    Well my trip started on august 17. With a lot of debate do we go or should we cancel we decided to come. Last year we were supposed to be here also and we did cancel so we were looking forward to this year. My son will be a senior this year and I am in healthcare so we needed a break. A lot of worrying because you have to have negative test results. We left Newark on JetBlue early and landed early. We were in and out of the airport and at the Hyatt by 1:45. Room was ready and so it begins. First night tradition is Smokey Joe’s. We were there by 6 and it was perfect. Wednesday got up early and hit the beach all day. Storms on and off throughout the day. Pitch black skies then sun. Dinner was going to be Daniels but they are closed due to renovations. We ended up at Tango and it was good but not great. They overcooked my sons steak and our meal they changed a couple things from last time. Thursday got up early got my hut and didn’t the day at the beach. Dinner was azurros and it was perfect. Early reservation and then a long walk on the beach. Right now I am sitting on the beach and enjoying the peace and just listening to the ocean.
