Yesterday was spent dodging the raindrops and trying to take advantage of the brief breaks between storms. This resort is wonderful when the weather is nice, but indoor activities are limited especially if you want to keep room charges to a minimum. Thankfully Robby is content looking through the aquariums in the lobby, and he didn't seem the mind standing in the torrential downpours to look at the turtles in the lagoons in front of the hotel.
We took full advantage of the time between
thunderstorms by hitting the Lazy River and the pools. A light rain was
not enough of a deterrent to keep us from the water, but we headed for
cover each time we felt the winds pick up and heard the thunder rumbling
towards us. I wish we had been able to spend hours splashing, but
mother nature did not cooperate.
Because we were stuck inside
today, we spent a lot of time walking through the various hotel lobbies
in the resort. I was struck by the fact I haven't seen anybody else with
a disability. I'm accustomed to being the only amputee, but it is rare to
encounter another person with some sort of handicap. I am used to
seeing people on crutches, in wheelchairs or reliant upon a walker or
cane. I haven't seen anybody reliant on anything other than their
biological limbs. It is a strange feeling to be the only one with a
disability, but I am not letting that stop me. We have been having a
weather is supposed to be clear today which is good news because we are
going on a snorkeling excursion. Robby is hoping to see some colorful
fish. I'm hoping to survive the boat trip without becoming sea sick.
Let's hope we both get our wishes!
