    Day 14. Since we are moving today, we've been cleaning out the fridge of leftovers. We got excellent breakfast burritos from the store downstairs and hit the lazy river early. We spent the day by the river and played bingo. I won the first game! Certainly not a windfall, but the winnings covered happy hour drinks at the beach bar. We got cleaned up and went in search of dinner. We walked to Garden Fresh at the Playa Linda. It was our first time there and we both ordered the Cobb salad. They were good and just the right amount for a light dinner. We stopped by Moomba on the way back and had a couple of drinks, we were back in the room by 9:30. Today is moving day and we will be at the Holiday Inn for the rest of our trip. We are looking forward to a change of scenery and having a palapa on the beach every day.

    Day 15. We got up and went to Diana's Pancake Place for breakfast. It was good and those pancakes are surprisingly filling. We got back and moved over to the Holiday Inn. It was pretty uneventful and we were in our room before 3:00. During the wait time we went to Superfoods and grabbed a few items to make sandwiches for lunches on the beach. Once checked in we went down to get a palapa for the stay. Palapas are $30 a day for the full day, $15 after 3:00. With my Spire Elite status we got a front row palapa reserved for our entire stay for free. We have to be down at the palapa by 10:30 every morning, that sure beats getting up at 6:00 for a seat at the pool or beach at Surf Club. We walked over to Carlito's for happy hour then back to the room for showers before heading downtown to have dinner with Paul and Andrea at Hung Paradise. Pam had chicken and broccoli and I had chicken curry. It's so nice to see friends and catch up over good food. After dinner we went to Moomba to say goodbye to friends leaving this morning. They are stopping by in a few to drop off their remaining liquor and some food stuff. Hans is stopping by to get our rental and have it washed this morning and we will veg on the beach all day.

    Free booze, free Palapa for the week and not having to get up early, you scored Walt! I'm glad you're having a great vacation for a few weeks.

    Holiday Inn is really the best value on Palm Beach. Its a great location. Anything new happening on the property?
    The best trip is the next trip. Anxiously waiting to book something.

    Other than several of the shops downstairs being closed (like empty with for rent signs in the windows) and no bar seating, things are pretty much the same.

    Day 16. We walked down to Chicken and Lobster for breakfast where I had my favorite "Breakfast of Champions". We got back to the HI and our palapa around 9:30. It's so nice to sleep in late and not to have to worry about a spot on the beach. Friends of ours from back home stopped by to drop off some booze and food for us as they were flying home so we said good bye to them and agreed to meet at the crab house when we get home. We were on the beach all day, and had sandwiches Pam made for lunch. We floated around and hit happy hour at Oceanside bar. We had leftovers for dinner and went to Moomba for nightcaps. We have noticed a rise in tourists this weekend, so hopefully the economy will turn around soon. We also heard that curfew will be extended to 12:00 next week, we are keeping our fingers crossed. It's not so much that we want the extra drinking time, but we like to eat later, so it will allow us to take our time eating dinner and still have time for a few cocktails in the evening. Today is Mother's Day, so Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there!
