I'm not sure if I can accurately describe how nice it felt to catch up on sleep a bit. It was pretty fantastic.
Especially since this is how I started the day. :)
Mark went inside for a minute while I was finishing my coffee and wound up with a little competition for his seat when he came back. There were three of these birds, and they came right up to us!
They hung out for a few minutes, then eventually moved on once they realized we didn't have any food for them. Mark and I were pretty hungry by then, so we walked down to Mar y Tierra for breakfast.
Everything was really tasty, and we got to sit outside. I wish I could eat breakfast like this every day!
Our bird friends eventually made their way over to the restaurant, too, and were trolling for handouts.
We went for a short walk after breakfast. This was the view from the bar by the main section of the beach. :)
The iguanas were starting to come out by the time we started walking back to the room. This one was particularly big.
The housekeeping staff at the resort must be made up of ninjas, because they are awesome about quickly cleaning your room when you're away. They left us a little towel elephant when they made our bed. :) We changed into our bathing suits, sunblocked up, and walked down to the main section of the beach.
While the view was nice, all of the seats were already taken! Granted, it was late morning, but we walked allllll the way down to the end and every single seat was full.
Good thing we had the little beach near our room! Granted, we'd have to walk down to the swimming area, but at least we had a nice place to hang out. This is how I spent most of the day. Well, this and drinks.
We eventually took a short break for lunch, then came back to our chairs to hang out some more.
We walked down to the main section of beach and went swimming for a while. There are lots of fish that hang out in the swimming area, so I had fun watching them swim around while Mark went out to play in the waves.
We eventually wandered back to our chairs and grabbed a couple drinks to sip while we watched the sun go down.
Not a bad view to end our lazy beach day. :)
We wound up going to Tamansari for dinner. I inhaled every last bit of curry I could get my hands on, and it was all really good.
After dinner, we grabbed some seats in the Plaza Espana, grabbed a couple drinks, and hung out for a bit. One of the funniest things last year was watching drunk people dance to the Imperial Band, so we were hoping for some more entertainment. :)
We played cards for a bit, watched some silly people dancing, then eventually made our way back to the room. We had an early bus to catch the next morning!
