No pictures for today, sorry. But, even though I didn't capture any moments, today was good.
It started of with some sister time. My mom was off to classes, my dad had Benny down at the pool, and Tori and I went to the beach. They have the funniest beach here, it's all rocky going in...until you hit ankle deep muck. It's actually really fun, just not the sandy feel that you'd expect. We swam for a time, then sat on the beach chairs and read for a longer time. Pride and Prejudice with your toes wiggling around in the sand is the way to go. Jane Austen sure does have a way with words. That was just wonderful--they have chairs set up underneath some trees on the beach, so it's nice and shady and cool. Heaven.
We had lunch at the pool with my dad and Benny, then went up to the hotel room and had our daily rest time. I got Benny down for a nap, my dad went to they gym, and Tori and I had our daily rest time--naps and more reading included.
Dinner was absolutely delicious. We decided to try Mango's for dinner, and it was wonderful. I ordered ribs--yum. All I had to do was scoop the bone out of the meat and continue on with my eating. And they came with mashed potatoes and broccoli, which made the meal complete.
After dinner, my mom and I decided to go for a walk. We went two or so miles outside before she started getting the heebie jeebies, so we went inside to power walk the halls. We made it all the way up to the 5th floor, then back down to the 3rd (where the lobby is) before ran into some of her colleagues. We talked to them for a long while, and at some point my mom mentioned my upcoming Fiji trip. They are so sweet, they were all so happy that I would do that. They asked if it was going to be the first "mission" I was going on--not quite, but the general idea from what it sounded like. It was really fun talking to them, I wonder what they're like when they're sober. Line of the day (coming from a very drunk, and very old man--bushy eyebrows and all): that's the way it goes, first your money, then your clothes. Maybe that's funnier in context. Ah well, I know the context, and it's hilarious. If you wanna know, go ahead and ask. All the same, I was entertained, and glad that I won't be in that position.
Jamaican adventures of the day are complete. Lesson learned on Day 7: be friendly.
