Beautiful lights on 5th Ave.
Hola all, today is Domingo, the day of rest & family time for many of the hardworking locals. We woke around 7:30 am with the sun peeking into our room. We are praying for a full day of sun here as every day there's been cloud or very windy. (after hearing Ottawa & Crossfield got a nasty dumping of snow, all of a sudden our weather's ideal 😉

Yesterday the day started nice but ended up cool & windy so we left the beach @ 2 PM & came back & sat in the hot tub with a drink. Later we took a stroll & picked up some fresh pizza & enjoyed some downtime of reading.

Dinner was leftovers but it was actually a pretty good feast when we put it all together. We'd bought salad fixins' but no dressing but luckily after makin' some chit chat with our waiter, he kindly gave me a free bowl of the best salad dressing to go...😉

By about 8 last night it started to pour, so we opted out of the fire show at the beach. But feelin' cooped up we threw on our rain gear, umbrellas & headed out

Sal's FIRST drink of the day!
for a walk. (two grandmas stayed in on their laptops). Well the restaurants were booming, beautiful settings with candles and pretty lights all over & no shortage of live bands & DJ's playing music. We stopped & got some milkshakes for the girls & before long Lara & Rory weren't feeling well.

We finished the night by watching the movie Corpse Bride, and the troops were in bed by 11. I followed later after a tasty Kaluha! Peace & quiet at the end of the day for moi.

It's 8:30 am, and we're heading out for a walk. We'll see what Domingo brings for us but hopefully tonight we'll take in the amazing fire/dance show on the beach which starts around 10:30. Here's the link to it if you want to check it out:

Milkshake time

Nanna & a bottle of Tequila (yes I'm bad! And NO Nanna doesn't drink...but it's tradition to make her pose with the booze!!!)

Great blogs Sally
Great blogs Sally. The pictures provide a real feel for the place. However, putting a tequila bottle in your Mom's hand and taking her picture while she's sleeping is a little mean. I'm sure she's being a good sport about it.

Nanna & Tequila
Your right. her eyes are open and she's smiling. I guess I should have looked closer.

Well I think I chose 2 and one might've been funnier with her eyes closed! This one is there now, and you never know, maybe ma will hit the bottle before it's all over???
