    Another wonderful day at the beach.... had a couple of short showers at lunchtime..... just hunkered at the palapa til they blew over. Lunch at Pega Pega and a nap in the afternoon..... of course we all knew that. We did have a very nice presentation this morning from the ATA and it only lasted a few minutes so no encroachment on beach time. Very happy to have the 10 year certificate but will never make it to 20 since the count starts again this year! I'm really looking forward to get the license plate brackets on our rides when I get back home......

    Dinner planned for Papiamento tonight at 6:30 and the sky looks a bit threatening..... we'll take our chances on the rain and hopefully no flies tonight!

    Outstanding food, atmosphere and service at Papiamento last night.... appetizers, filet for Patti and pork chop for me.... and then dessert for me, coffee for Patti. I have noticed that we are paying more for our meals compared to last time.... and it's about 8-15 more depending on lunch or dinner. As long as I get what I pay for I'm ok... it's about value and not the cost.

    Craziest thing happened to me last night..... waiting for our taxi for dinner.... I hear my name called out 3 or 4 times... strange....! I look for the source and damned if it wasn't my niece.... I didn't even know she was on the island.... and I didn't even recognize her at first... love that kid!

    Manchebo is going thru some changes in the lobby with an extension to the entry, a real concierge desk set up, gift shop being moved to the front and a hospitality center going where the gift shop was. All nicely done.

    Peg..... your guy Josuel has been promoted and won't be doing your towels on the beach anymore. He's now a beach server and backup bartender.... On his way to the GM slot!

    So much of the same routine for us each day..... and we love it.... and now I'm off to the beach!

    So excited for Josuel. He works so hard and totally deserves a promotion. At the managers hour on our last trip we were talking to the manager and I was commenting on what a good employee Josuel must be. He did say that he was trying to give him more responsibility and opportunities so it sounded like they were open to moving him on up. Great news.

    Enjoying your reports. Your vacation sounds perfect.

    Catching up on your wonderful trip reports, Chuck. Sounds like you and Patti are having exactly the vacation you wanted and needed. Happy Anniversary!!
    That's fantastic news about Joseul. He's such an incredibly hard worker and it's great to hear management has recognized and rewarded him for it.
    I read about the renovations to the front lobby and can hardly wait to see them for myself in a few weeks. Leave a few Brights for me, okay? Enjoy and thanks for sharing your trip with us!
