Three points to be made here...
First - sleeping in the sun is NEVER a good idea. Enough said.
Second- the wind was blowing pretty strongly.
Third- sunscreen only works on skin it has been applied to.

I spent the rest of the day and evening applying solarcaine, aloe, and avoiding direct skin contact with anything. Not the most comfortable evening, lol, but we had good friends, good food, good tunes, and an amazing view ;-)
Apart from my sun-fail, the trip was a blast - we hung out at the pool bar (best pina colada's ever!), ate tacos, chilled, visited Port, bought shrimp, sunglasses and pottery, ate, drank (including gallons of water), played, drove a Rhino in a sand/wind storm (wow, that was an experience, LOL!!), ... and holding with my inability to understand time and distance when I imbibe - I decided it was a brilliant idea to walk out at low tide to try and reach the shrimp boats. ;-) Ha! I woke to an incredibly tired, tolerant, protective, and amused husband, my sopping wet sandy clothing in the tub and a craving for shrimp.
We had a great time. We truly relaxed, enjoyed the moments, and achieved rest. I didn't study. I didn't work. I didn't workout. I didn't even exercise at all other than walking (lots and lots of walking), kicking in the water, and of course - my infamous shrimp boat excursion. We left our bedroom patio slider open each night and slept to the song of the surf crashing on the beach.
|Hard to leave this view behind! But we've been coming here for years, and know that it'll be right there waiting for us next time!|
