We spent a wonderful week with
Cassandra's parents, John & Susanna in Puerto Plata. They were
staying at the luxurious Lifestyle Holiday Vacation Club
resort just adjacent to the marina we were at. This made getting
together a fifteen minute walk or five minute bike ride. Upon arrival
they spontaneously upgraded to V.I.P. status allowing them access to
the best services, beaches and restaurants the resort had to offer
(having just finished writing, producing and performing in a play
they deserved it!). Furthermore, they got us V.I.P. status allowing
us the same access. Although we continued sleeping on the boat at the
marina every night we spent our days in the lap of luxury at the resort; lounging
in the sun, stuffing our faces and drinking blended drinks with
little umbrellas (celebrating Canada's Olympic hockey golds!!). I'm
generally not an “all-inclusive” type of guy but I have to admit
it was a nice change from the trials of living on a boat. They
only blemish on an otherwise perfectly good week was that I came down
with a brutal 24-hour bug that had it coming out of both ends at high
velocity, Exorcist style.
John & Susanna also brought us many
needed supplies from Canada that were hard to find here in the south.
Particular foods, clothes and boat equipment. We also filled up their
return luggage with items whose utility was ultimately not meriting
the space they were taking on the boat.
Huge thanks to John & Susanna for
Anybody else coming down?
Would really LOVE to know what items you sent home with the parents. What sort of things were no longer deserving precious storage space?ReplyDelete
