Where to begin......

Where to begin. We had the most amazing trip. It was truly everthing I had imagined it would be.There is so much to write and tell. So I thought I would do it day by day. It might take me a few days to get it all written.
We got there sunday night and were just blown away by the scenary and the beach. We were pretty hungry so we got our names on a list for a resturant. We ate the first night at the seaside grill. It was located right down by the beach. It was incredible. The sun sets there very early so by 7 it is dark. Which took a little getting use to.
Monday was our first full day and was a great day. We slept in, went and got some breakfast at the buffet. Ate way to much. Which seemed to be a common theme each day. When it's All Inclusive why not.
We spent most of the day on the beach, relaxing, reading, sleeping. Some friends we went with found a great spot about 5 minutes down from our beach that was not so rocky. We walked down there and had our first taste of what it was like to swim in the ocean,
It was incredible. The water was so warm and of course tasted very salty. But it was like swimming in a warm bath. I loved it. It was one of my favorite parts was swimming in the ocean. The water was so clear and breathtaking. It almost doesn't seem real.
Then we went back for a nap and to get out of the sun for a little. Shower and get ready for the evening. Most of the a la carte restaurants there require you to dress up to dine. It was lots of fun. Note to self for next trip, back way less capris and shorts and shirts and more skirts and beachy clothes. I took way to much stuff that I didn't even wear. Monday night we dined at the French restuarant. It was a highlight. I was a little nervous about the food. But it was very yummy. Probably are favorite restuarant. It was great. Then we headed down to the beach for the big game. It was amazing. Watching Duke win the national championship while on the beach. There was only one other person there cheering Duke on. Everyone else was cheering for Butler. So we cheered very loud and were so excited. A dream come true.
