On Saturday morning, we woke up to a dismal, dreary, overcast day. Grey skies blocked the sunshine and the wind was starting to pick up. That didn’t stop me from attending the Hatha Yoga class at 9:15 though. When we checked in, the receptionist gave us a schedule of activities for the weekend. I was super excited to see a yoga class was going to be offered on Saturday morning.
After I ate breakfast and changed into some workout clothes, I met the teacher and other classmates at Eb and Flo’s Rentals in the Community Hall. We grabbed our mats and walked over to the Lakeside Pavilion. The teacher was a wonderful woman from Belgium, who was very attentive to the needs of each student. She made sure to ask each of us what style we usually practice and if we had any specific health concerns. The yoga class lasted about an hour and a half and was definitely one of the best I have been to. I am not sure if it was the teacher of the feeling of peace I felt during the class but my day was off to a great start.
When I got back to the room, I found my boyfriend sitting on the balcony enjoying a cup of coffee. I poured myself a cup, topped it with whipped cream (fat free of course) and joined him. While I was in my yoga class, he attempted to enjoy the ocean. Much to his dismay, the weather was not conducive to enjoying the beach at all. In fact, we both wore pants and sweatshirts for the rest of the day. Around noon, we made lunch, which included turkey and cheese sandwiches and salt and pepper chips.
After lunch, we decided to check out some of the activities available at the resort. We played two thrilling rounds of miniature golf at the Port Holes Miniature Golf Course. He may have won the game but I got the only hole-in-one!
Then he tried to get me to ride a bicycle and quickly figured out why I have no intention of completing a triathlon in the near future. I still have a bruise on my leg for that bicycle. Since riding bicycles was out of the question, we played some of the other games. We played a few games of shuffleboard. He won again but I did score 20 points in one round.
We also played ping pong, which I have never really played before. My hand-eye coordination isn’t the best but I ended up having a lot of fun. By the time we finished playing, we had a hit streak of 12!
Finally, it was time to get ready for dinner. On our way to the Community Hall, we made reservations at Sonya’s, one of the restaurants at the resort.
Sonya’s was the perfect place for us to enjoy a delicious meal and a quiet evening. I ordered coconut curried “she” crab soup as an appetizer and the vegetarian trio for dinner. My boyfriend ordered the herb-crusted ribeye for dinner. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the meal and even splurged on dessert! The banana bread pudding with chocolate chips was absolutely amazing.
After our amazing dinner (seriously it was awesome!), we decided to go back to the room and watch a movie. We were hoping to walk on the beach and star gaze but it was so windy and overcast that there was not a single star to be seen.
