Woke up this morning to the sound of the Indian Ocean crashing on the rocks, what a
fabulous place this is, the sun is shining, and we have a lovely blue sky.
We took a late breakfast, we both took the English breakfast! yes bacon freshly cooked to how you like it! you never realise how much you miss it! until you can’t get it, so it was a good change.
Back to the room, then downstairs by the pool, with our books, what a lovely few hours just being lazy, we both went into the 30 metre pool which was 24 degrees ( temperature taken at 6.30am) didn’t seem cold it was just right. Geoff had coffee whilst I had a fresh pineapple juice, it was
lovely, later he had a beer, I had a fresh mango juice. It is so relaxing here, Geoff is enjoying keeping the flunkies busy!
Back to the room for a late lunch, showers etc, before getting ready, we have been invited by the hotel to a cocktail party. At 6pm we headed for the dining room, where we met Carlos Sanchez, who was the Operations Manager, Geoff had champagne whilst I had a mojito, and very nice it was too. Later Tony arrived he was the General Manager who came from Tasmania, so Geoff and him had long discussions on Rugby! Whilst I enjoyed talking to Carlos, and another guy who was a Commercial solicitor in London, although he was Lebanese! another Mojito, and more champagne, I was slowly getting p….d and more talkative!! We finally left at 7.30pm and had dinner, which was very enjoyable, we have an early start tomorrow, so I fell into bed at 10pm
