Another beautiful sunrise and light breakfast on the balcony. Off for a morning shopping trip to Regent Village, Saltmills Plaza and Ports of Call. All are in the same general area. We walked around Regent Village first - some shops opened at 9 o’clock, others don’t open until 10. I noticed that some shopkeepers were quite pleasant and seemed very appreciative for the business. Others seemed not to care. At Ports of Call shopping area, I found some especially nice shirts and sundresses in Dive Provo. Not the usual things you see in many of the souvenir shops. These were a step up.
We also went to Potcake Place located right in the Saltmills Plaza. We saw some of the puppies awaiting adoption. So very sweet and friendly. Planning to go back and take one out for a little walk/excursion/playtime.
After shopping, back for some lunch and beverages on the balcony. Then off to the beach. Grace Bay was much calmer than previous days. Took out a float from the resort and just soaked up the warmth and sunshine. We also took a walk down the beach past the Beaches resort. It is a huge resort with lots of beach frontage. What a difference though as far as noise level and kids. I couldn't imagine a week around all of the kids. The Alexandra resort is so relaxed and quiet. We stayed on the beach to watch the sunset again. It’s not the best vantage point for watching a sunset though because you don’t see it going down over the sea.
Had a casual (i.e., relatively inexpensive) dinner at Cabana Bar & Grill at Ocean Club. (It’s not easy to get to though, if you aren’t staying there and aren’t arriving from the beach. We stopped in the office and they told us to park in the spaces by the office/reception area, and then walk down to the beach.) We both had the cabana tacos with grouper. Very good for the price. It wasn't crowded, and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. Nice, casual, outdoor setting. Dinner with two glasses of the house wine (which was very good) and one dessert came to $61. That included the 12% govt tax. (Before tip)
So ended another beautiful day on the island.
