Where I stayed
We passed by a guy near the pool on the 'beach' side selling the water sports at the hotel and I asked him about the snorkelling (which I wanted to do), but then decided that I might actually want to try scuba diving
I wanted to look into getting a pedicure (which I badly needed), so Leanna and I ventured past the pool and further down to where I saw the "beauty parlour" on the map, which brought us to the edge of the resort and a row of stores. There were some cars parked there as well, and Leanna's eyes opened wide as she said to me "Are we... "Beyond"?? I think we're "Beyond"!" But no, we were not in the land of "Beyond" (although we were almost there!). We went to the pedicure place and I found out that it was only $21US (a good price) and I made an appointment for a half hour later. Then we went to the beach where everyone was, and I sat there for a bit until it was time to go
I went for my pedicure awhile after and the woman who did it did a really good job, I thought, so I gave her a good tip. After that I went back to the beach, and then we had lunch, and then Leanna and Brittany decided they wanted to get manicures, and Lynette and I wanted the $23 one hour massages they also have here, so we went back to the area. Lynette and I booked our massage for tomorrow morning while the two girls were able to get their manicures right away. After that we went down to the smaller beach for awhile. The weather was starting to get worse and it even rained (lightly sprinkled) for a bit. The water was getting a little rougher and it was getting a bit cold (windy). Then we went back up to our rooms and Leanna and I rested a bit. We weren't going for dinner until 9pm (reservations had been made for the Italian restaurant then). During that time, it got dark and then it started to pour! (I am so glad I thought to bring an umbrella!) I guess this was the "30% chance of showers" we were supposed to have today, but it lasted for quite awhile - all throughout dinner until the end. The restaurant overlooked the beach and we had a good view of the boisterous large waves hurtling in onto the shore. I REALLY hope it doesn't stay like this for the rest of the week, since today was the first day of what it supposed to be until the end of our stay "showers" every day! It is quite a storm still out there now as I write this at 12:36am.
