          ... wait... nevermind), a Sauv Blanc and much lovely conversation, and I was absolutely ready to call it a day. Well, after a nice sobering-up soak in the aforementioned private hot tub on our deck overlooking the crashing gorgeous tropical waves at night. Just awful. The kind of awful I could absolutely use 10 days of. ...

This morning we went to ...
