I arrived a bit tired (how can 4hours of flying take 10 hours??). I was not met at the air field,found a cab, checked in and was surprised to find major construction in progress. Remember the picture of Ernesta's writing booth in the corner...? (see post prior to departure) It's gone.
Replaced by noisy workers with...yes, you noticed, jackhammers!!
They were going to enlarge the bar, hence-no restaurant, no bar and obviously--No pool!! HRH Doris Rose is not happy.
And I had a sneaky feeling that there weren't too many other guests...
So, not only was there no quiet place to sit and put my wonderous thoughts on paper, there was simply no place quiet to sit!
I was mercifully rescued by my friend Kenrick and taken for a golf cart tour, which was delightful.
This is the town center, which has a large playground for the kids, benches for grown ups, snack stands and information booths. (and a newly paved street--those are hand laid paving stones, yup).
and according to " Courtney" it is the hottest spot on the island.
Fido's is a fixture just North of the park (and next door to the Catholic church) for dinner, drinks and live music. It's a very large and fun place inside there is another restaurant upstairs and several art galleries.
We drove farther south to the lagoon for the ritual 4:30 Crocodile feed. (some folks say "cocodrile", oh, Ian...)
but first needed to run to the store to get a $9 frozen chicken!!
Reluctantly I returned to my suite and, in fact, went down to Fido's for a lovely dinner. I sat on the porch, watched the sunset reflected in the clouds and the Guatamalan ladies selling their beautiful embroidered goods.
I guess I'll just wait to see what tomorrow brings....
