I’m up early, before the sun and after one full day of lounging at the beach, on the roof, on the balcony, in the club, at pool side, I would say that I am no longer sleep deprived and it wasn’t just reclining, I did manage to get in a workout at the gym and some good walks at the ocean and today I’m hoping to get to a 9am exercise class at Olas. I’ve never done that before!
Hmmm…. solo at the beach. Yes, it was filled with the usual beauty. The place continues to lift me up. The staff continues to offer their unique hospitality and I was back with Angel for a wonderful dinner at the Grill complete with a visit from the chef to make sure I loved everything, and I did. They created a dinner just for me and Angel kept my glass filled with an amazing wine that got the best of me as I walked back to the room weaving…
I spent a lot of the day reading and thinking and most of the day was peaceful. Of course by late afternoon, as I walked at the ocean I was hit with your absence. But that comes with the territory. We found and loved this place together and as much as I still love it, it’s can’t be the same without you.
But there’s help on the way. As I sat at dinner, Jane, back home, was joining me on What’s App… and tomorrow afternoon this beach silence will be filled with our friends joining me as we planned it before you left. I couldn’t be here a week by myself so company, just in time for chocolates at the club.
Tonight is wine tasting with Martien… and I’m sure he will remember that we joined him to taste tequila a few years ago and once again, my path will be unsteady at the end of the day, but hey, I’m not driving.
Love you T. Miss you in our paradise on earth.
