it's good to be home.

yes, very good. I've completely enjoyed getting back into my groove - just a bit - today. Starting with my own bed last night (and before, catching up just a bit on my "daily reads" blog favorites). This morning, started with warm milk in my coffee - I'm not too keen on "carribean dairy" (I think it comes from a can - ugh...), catching up quickly with Katie before she left for class, then a run in the park - oh boy - it feels great here - 70 degrees (running outside was cooler than the air conditioned gym from earlier this week!), car wash, dry cleaners, a little groceries and a little bit of digging through the piles of stuff that accumulated while we were gone. How does that happen? little paper pixies who wreak havoc when there's no one around?

I alluded to "camera issues" - I had charged my camera battery on Sunday, but Tuesday morning I got a low battery charge warning. It seemed intermittent, and I can't imagine the battery was really not charged, but I only took about 50 pictures. And posted about 30 at ritzpix. Bummer, because I was looking forward to really capturing the mood with pictures since I took zero last year. One of the guys there with Aarons is the designated photographer and I made sure he took a few of us. And he's usually good about sending e-copies, so I'm hopeful there will be a few (one?!) good shots.

Here are a few of my favorites:

the only long-armed M&M shot

view from the Rogovin beach cabana - Tuesday - had a pool cabana the other days

view from the Rogovin beach cabana on Friday (Wednesday and Thursday's cabana was the one across the pool behind the chair)

shell chandelier - up close view - inside the Rogovin pool cabana - unfortunately, we weren't ever there at night to see it lit!

lunch for one at Gabi Beach - a yummy shrimp cocktail, a glass of sauvignon blanc and the May "love" issue of O magazine

Gabi Beach (had this lovely view at my lunches for one)

local flowers - bloomed in bunches - in this beautiful red/orange, and also yellow

live flamingos - love the reflection, too.

hotel vibe - very modern - this tableau was in the lower lobby by the restrooms (no kidding!)


  1. Cool pix, the beach looks great, so clean.

  2. Forgot to say that was me in the previous comment, Lydia


Thanks for the feedback!
