Okay, I'm sitting on the balcony with my Macbook Pro and I'm posting to my blog. It is quite nice out here. There is a good breeze blowing and feels lovely. I took a few pictures to share. My friend and I went out and got some food. We ate at Dairy Queen and it was delicious! We were going to bring it back to the room, but we ended up pulling in a lot and eating it. We had planned to get some drinks and things for the room, but he was really tired as he didn't sleep well the night before. I didn't either so I was not opposed to going back to the room.
We stopped in the lobby where they have a little room with drink machines and such. We both got a snack for later and two drinks each. We'll go pick up more sodas tomorrow to have for the week. Ah! By the way. I said we were checking out of here to go home Sunday as usual, right? Well, my friend sprung a surprise on me. He booked two more days! We are staying here until Tuesday! We have to check out on Sunday and check right back in. They fixed it so we didn't have to worry about changing rooms. Cool, yes? I was shocked.
There is one bad thing about it. I didn't pack enough sleep shorts for the extra days! I have more underwear than I'd wear in forever, but I only had enough sleep shorts to get through. Luckily, this hotel has a laundry, so I will just wash some of my sleep shorts and possibly some shirts and things and be able to have fresh ones to last. I'm quite pleased that I get two extra days! Total shocker!
The room we were in at the other place was a lot bigger than this one, but it's still oceanfront so that is all that matters. It has a great view in either direction. At the other place, we were very close to 2nd Ave. Pier. Here, we are a bit further from the Springmaid pier. It was destroyed in a hurricane a few years back and I was very happy to see today that they are rebuilding!! I am hoping it's rebuilt and ready to go by the time we come back in September. I've never been to it while it was standing. The progress is looking great.
I'll try to get a few pictures closer to it in a day or so and I'll see if I can find any on here of it like it was after the hurricane. I took some, but I'm not sure if I have them on here or not. I'll check and if I do, you'll be able to see how far they have progressed with it.
So, let me share a few pictures, and then I'm going to relax and enjoy this lovely ocean breeze and the sounds of the ocean. Total Bliss!
