Well, unfortunately, I am now back at work. Back to the same ol' routine. Back to reality! It has been a wonderful vacation!! I do believe that we wrote a new definition to the word lazy!!! We lived in the ocean for the first 2 days, just lounging around, soaking in the sun. It did rain everyday that we were there but it was mostly a short afternoon shower, except on Thurs and Fri. Those days, it rained about 4 hours each day. During the afternoon short showers, we chose to take an afternoon nap. :) Bliss!!! Then Wed, we took a sunset cruise from our hotel, went snorkeling and saw a huge stingray digging in the sand, an anchor and cannon from a sunken pirate ship, and tons of other sea creatures. It was really awesome. Then we went swimming through a cave and to Rick's Cafe. It was a restaurant on the edge of a cliff where there was an awesome view of the sunset. There was also a place to cliff jump. Which Kent nor I partook in. We really aren't the daredevil type. We just enjoyed watching other people try to gain the courage to jump off. We ate, then we were on our way back to the hotel. Then we spent the remainder of the days in the pool and lounging around. We did venture out off of the hotel grounds on Friday since it was our last day and we thought we would take in some of the local shops and ate at Margarittaville. Their shopping center was Times Square Shopping Mall. I've been to NYC 3 times and when I think of Times Square, that's what is on my mind. Nope!!

This was it. There were about 12-15 shops that had essentially the exact same items. i bought 2 photo albums, a pair of flip flops and Kent bought a hat. Then we had lunch:

Of course it started raining while we were there, and our taxi driver had a blow out on the way back making me think that he just took off with our $$ and souveniers. Alas, he came back and we spent the rest of the afternoon in the pool. On Sat, before we headed to the airport, Kent had made friends with our taxi driver and he was taking us on the west side to get some lobster. We had heard from other hotel guests that the lobster there was the best. So they were right!! It was the best lobster I have ever eaten!! Not too bad priced either!

Well, I guess I will leave you with some more of my pics. I only took about 100, but I will spare you and give you a glimpse:
