And then we skipped off to the beach again!
Turns out that every year around this time, it’s just super cheap to hop down to the islands. We found $10 tickets again, and this time we had a couple free hotel nights…and it just seemed too good to be true. We squeezed in a shorter trip between two Flour & Flowers Fridays, and thankfully had the capacity to keep The Breakfast Club, sewing, church, The Reinforcers, and Playhouse going without us!
When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk staff recognized us. Because, yes, it’s us again 🙂 We did get a special fruit treat as returning guests, and they brought Stephen cake on his birthday again. We really can’t lose at this place!
And despite it being rainy season, we had a beautiful experience yet again. It was storming when we arrived, delaying our landing for twenty minutes; and it was storming again when we left. We had gorgeous blue skies for the days in between.
While you run the risk of rain during rainy season, you get a few benefits: everything is in “low season”–less people and less money, so win-win; the sunsets are stellar when you get them through the clouds; and the waves are indescribable–and a bit deadly–but amazing! It’s such fun to be out playing in the water. The undertow is powerful, so you can’t go out too deep, but the waves will crash way over your head at times and tumble you all over the place.
We found this cute little ice cream shoppe with locally-made ice cream and hand-dipped cones that taste so much like iced animal crackers. So it was delicious, and now we are requesting those in the next care package! 😂
