~ Do not sit next to the man who never gets up to use el baño ~

That should be rule #1 for all vacations at places with swim up bars. Loved it!

Liz- Yes, the sleeping quiet hour is lovely, too bad about the other 23 hours in the day. I need another vacation.

Jonna- I live by that rule, perhaps the only rule to live by on vacation. :P

Erica- The flaming phallus was DELICIOUS. I could eat it again and again and again. Sending you some virtual warmth!

Susan- I try to be happy every day, some days it takes a little more work than others, but generally I am Little Mary Sunshine.

Melissa- There was some serious excitement and LOTS of running and jumping and swimming in the sun to knock him out. Hey, why don't you come for a vacation and you can experience him for yourself?

Brice- Too true, but in a heated pool, that could be considered a negative.

Heather- Do it right where you are! (When it warms up of course). Detroit is a really amazing city and you can always cross over to my old home town and see the lay of the land.

Meaghan- Glad you liked the pics, thanks for the kind words about Monster Max! I need to catch up on your blog, sorry it's been so long.
