Anniversary Celebrations Part Two

8 Nov

After a night of Seinfeld, cake and packing, (read about our anniversary celebrations part one) we woke up early (4:30am!) to get to the airport and security for our 6:00am flight (it’s a small airport).

By 12:45pm, we were lying pool side sipping pina coladas. 🙂

The rest of our week consisted of eating, walking along the beach and lots of hammocking.

I caught a gorgeous sunset one evening while out for a walk:We had a free cake delivered to our room in honor of our anniversary. It was covered in fondant, which I ate off of the entire cake because it was so good.

Notable eats included awesomely seasoned veggies wrapped up and topped with two eggs at the Spanish restaurant.And red, yellow and green tortilla chips (with amazing salsa and guac) at the Mexican restaurant.Lots of these guys were roaming around the resort:

We played the coolest, most jungle-y mini golf ever.And even went to the gym most mornings for about 30 minutes. The gym was awesome, the weight area was open air with no walls, and the cardio area had floor to ceiling windows.The hubby had some super fresh coconut milk.On the Thursday we were there (day 5) the weather started getting much windier, and we heard Tropical Storm Rina was going to make an appearance. They prepped the resort for the rain and winds. They closed the storm doors on all of the balconies in the guests’ rooms.And boarded up the ocean front shops.The waves got rough too.We had to stay in our room for part of the day for our own safety. We went to bed with to the sound of thunder. It really didn’t seem to get too bad. The next morning the sky and ocean cleared and luckily we were able to enjoy our last day there out at the pool.

Unfortunately, getting home on that Saturday was a mess. It was snowing in the north east which caused a turbulent first flight to Philly. And then our flight from Philly to home got completely canceled. So we got a rental and drove home – it took almost double the time it should have – and the roads were a mess for most of it.

Not a fun way to end our anniversary trip. But luckily we have the memories from the first part of the trip!!
