Trip Report--Day 8--Thunder On The Beach

Start of week 2. Trying to catch up on Trip Reports with this one. Just another beach day this morning. Swimming, snorkelling, playing with the white fine sand of Grace Bay and enjoying our beach camp @ Bight Reef. Ate lunch on our Oceanfront balcony over looking Grace Bay. Early afternoon I took my 3 young Daughters down to Beaches Resorts. DR. VICKI stayed back @ the beach reading a book. Gained admission to check the place out. Got permission to partake in the water park area. Remember, I politely ask for special things like this. They have 4 water slides were you climb stairs to get to the top and slide your way down, sometimes with an air tube. The surf machine had a crazy line as always. My twins could go on a couple of the slides with a parent(me). Well, it rained off & on this afternoon. Left a couple of hours later to be pelted with the Big release of water(rain) on the Beach with Thunder. Another free 24 hr. vehicle undercarriage wash for the Island residents. Now this was the real thunder sounding rain storm that didn't go away after 20 minutes. I have never experienced this much thunder here ever like this. We had an instant Rezzy @ Baci's(Turtle Cove) for 6:30pm. Called @ 6:20 pm. That's an instant Rezzy in my book. Cancellations due to the late afternoon rain storm(thank you Mr. Whale Bladder). We both ordered the 16 oz(full one pounder Lobster{$43}). Best Pizza($17) with perfect thin crust with 4 toppings for the girls. Now this was the biggest single tail Lobster ever!! Huge!! We ate them and were fulfilled in our Lobster Lover's endeavour. "Somewhere" @ Coral Gardens just lost the quest for our best Lobster in T&C--it's @ BACI'S in Turtle Cove! Now, I had the best run of Blackjack table cleaning upon this 8th night @ the Casino for the whole trip playing 3 hands @ once. Don't know if I am getting fired(barred) tomorrow night. There is a good chance my job as a table cleaner may be eliminated. Day 9 is coming. DR. JIM

I keep hearing about how good the lobster is at Baci.....I think I'll have to add it to my list for December!

Good luck at the casino......but I think you have that already!

When we were there in June 2012 we too had a massive thunderstorm come rolling through one night while at dinner...it was something I will never soon forget! We don't get those too often is So Cal, I gotta tell you!

Sounds like maybe the casino is on to your winning ways...hey, they have to make a living too! :-)

Keep having fun!
