rainy, hot, temps 30
We had the MOST romantic, splendid evening last night. It was one of our last nights in the Presidential Suite so we wanted to take advantage of it. We asked Sabie our butler to give us dinner on the verandah. Not expecting anything except room service.
Well, she set out linen, silverware, an orchid in a vase. she scattered flower petals everywhere. And served us the most wonderful meal. We looked out over the Caribbean Sea - and down below the live band sang love ballads. (not for us, we realize - it was just unbelievable good luck!) So we ate, and danced, and held each other - and thanked Sabie over and over.
She was wonderful.
I will tell you, this vacation is so far better than anything I ever dreamed. Sandals is extraordinary...once we figured out what we wanted and what the resort offered. We're quieter than many of the people here. We don't party or want to be surrounded by parties. Basically, we want a quiet beach, a lovely ocean, romantic times together.
And we have them here.
And the people who love to drink and party, kareoke and limbo, have that too - in another area.
But what moves us and impresses us the most are the people. Their kindness. And it does not feel forced.
This morning the extraordinary Malaika told us we'd be moved into a Rondeval suite!!! tomorrow.
So, no tears. We're really delighted.
Off for lunch. it does feel odd to eat then just leave. Hope we don't do that back home.
