    Okay, its been a bit let me try and catch up. Yesterday had a few hiccups but we got through them....no need to elaborate. As far as everything else this is what we did. We had breakfast on the club level....great as always. We relaxed between the beach and the pool for a good part of the day. We ate with our man Dwayne at the Divi bar and had another excellent lunch. I had the madero club that is so big I can only eat half of it! My wife had the tacos and substituted chicken for the fish and loved it! After way to many lunch drinks we decided to head over and see our good friend Sebastian at the Radisson Blu. I was really impressed with the Radisson property. We had a few drinks and a pizza and a salad on the roof top pool deck which had INCREDIBLE views. After catching up with Sebastian he showed us a 2BR spot and it was NICE with ocean views....the prices are amazing for a 2BR spot IMO. I have read some are worried about the distance to the water. It is a 4:56 second walk to the beach, or it was for us anyways. They also offer a ride to and from the beach. They have chairs on the beach as well....5 pools and its a spot we will stay at soon.

    Last night we dined with our good friend Jennsen at the Divi Bar and had a great meal and some nice conversations with our good friend. The chicken wings were even better than I remembered! After dinner I donated a few more hundred at the casino...oh well.

    Today was a crazy day. Just got back from the beach. We took our covid testing this morning right here at the Ritz....very easy and we will have our results tomorrow. We ate at Madero again for lunch...same as yesterday and it was great again. After lunch and a FEW drinks we decided to take a walk. They recently finished the boardwalk that goes from basically the Ritz property to the light house.....it was so nice! We walked to Ocean Z and turned around as we were very warm. We got back to the Ritz and lounged in the pool for a few more hours....getting ready now to go out to dinner at Casa Nonna- can't wait!

    We had an incredible meal tonight at Casa Nonna! Spagetti and meatballs for myself and my wife had the chicken parm. Everything was incredible and possibly the best yet. After dinner my wife had desert on the club level and I tucked her in...she was tired! I walked down to the Hilton to play some poker...nothing going on as far as poker. The place was busy... BUT there was NO AC, it was awful! I donated a 100 after an hour or so and then went to donate the rest of tonight's money in less than it took to get drink #1 at the casino, lol. I have not done well at all in my 3 nights of gambling so far.

    All that said, it was a very enjoyable day!

    Just got up and around and the 1st thing I did was go get my NEG test results printed out. I was not worried about it at all UNTIL I was walking to retrieve them...the what ifs popped into my head for a second but that thought disappeared when she confirmed both results. Today we are being spoiled and they have a beach cabana ready for us- pretty exciting. Off for some breakfast on the club.

    Wow! Not really sure where to start. Today we got up and headed to the club for another nice breakfast. Nice omelets, bacon, sausage and OJ....very nice! After breakfast and getting our NEG results we headed to the beach. Abigail and company really hooked us up today! We were set up on the beach with a magnificent beach front Cabana....and what is better than a beach Cabana? Having the choice of the beach front cabana or one by the pool...they gave us both for our 25th! The shade, snacks and drinks were very much appreciated and sooooo unexpected! We met 3 or 4 couples the last few days that we spent the day sharing stories...very fun for someone who is not usually very social with someone he does not know.

    We hung out outside all day long. We just came in. Not sure if I have ever spent so much time in the water in my life. We ate dinner at Madero again today and had another great meal. Tonight we are headed to the Divi bar to hopefully dine with our good friend Jennsen but not 100% sure he is on today. Sadly its our last dinner on the island this trip.
