Once seated at our table, we ordered our pots of tea (for Stephen) and coffee (for me), and some milk for Liam's bottle, and then Ana and I went "hunting" for some goods to eat. We brought with us also some food for Liam and then Stephen went out to choose some food for himself. It was ever so thoughtful of Stephen to have already prepared me my coffee, I thought while I gratefully took a nice big sip... of sweetened tea!!! Bleurgh!!! I should have known better - duh. I found my coffee pot on the other side and an empty mug and served myself, and then finally the world started to go back into place. Given Ana's worried look, I must have looked a picture after that swig of tea!! HA HA :D
|Fish from the beach - not the snorkeling spot!|
Once we got back, we went straight to our room for a couple of hours of rest (and for me to catch up with some blog-writing!) and then we had a split - Ana and I went to the pool while Daddy and Liam went to the beach. Everybody had a nice afternoon messing around in the water (salty or not) until it was time for Daddy to get changed for his tennis lesson and for the rest of us to get ready for dinner! Ana had a small accident and slipped in the bathroom at shower-time - she got a bump on her knee, but I put some arnica gel on it and she was soon a happy banana again. You can't even see a bruise now. Dinner was a sort of thai affair with some fish on the stick the kids liked, and Daddy joined us a little later after his tennis and a shower. Ana devoured for dessert a chocolate mousse that tasted rather heavenly. Liam had chocolate cake, I had a small red berries tartlet and Daddy had some fruit cocktail. Afterwards we all went for a little walk along the front of the hotel and admired the amazingly dark skies (despite the hotel lights) and then it was time for bed. End of another day in paradise.
