Last night’s entertainment was “The Tenors.” Not quite Domingo, Pavarotti and Carreras, but pretty darned good. The dinner buffet theme for the night was Italian, so, the music was semi-appropriate. I still think that no one (but no one) does “Unchained Melody” better than Bobby Hatfield of the Righteous Brothers but these three guys made a good effort.
It was very pleasant to go to sleep to the sound of the surf breaking on the rocks below our 5th-floor balcony and equally pleasant to wake up to it. A good night’s sleep is always a surprise and a delight on the first night of a vacation.
This morning we made the trek to the Ley grocery store to purchase supplies. Took the local bus into town, then made a long walk to the store, with a detour at La Campanario café for a scrumptious breakfast of chilaquiles (?) with eggs and bacon. Super yummy if you like that sort of thing, which we do. Took a taxi back with our multitude of bags. It’s hard to believe we will need all that stuff for our ten day stay but I bet we manage to get through it all.
Michael is playing water volleyball as I write this post. Very ambitious. Me, I’m just going to gather up my book and my watercolor paraphernalia and mosey down to find a shaded chaise. That should keep me occupied and happy until happy hour rolls around.
