We both slept very well after our long day yesterday. Our lovely room was cool, exceptionally quiet and nobody stirred until 7:30AM. We make some coffee and tea and enjoy the patio and view from our room. The adults only pool is just the other side of the hedge.
We must get into the Indian Ocean at least once so we grab some beach towels and head into the roped off swimming area for a 45 minute soak as we watch strong showers work over the island and mountains. All we get is some drifting mist from the rain and it stops almost as soon as it starts. The water is warm and we float like corks all the while talking about how nice this little interlude is and how can we get back for a week or more stay. The resort is really beautiful and the service is divine!! We reluctantly get out and head back to the room.
Cleaned up, wet suits out to dry, we fix a drink and call room service for an order of fried calamari while deciding what to actually do about dinner. After drinks and some internet time, we decide why mess up a good thing and order Caesar salads with grilled chicken from room service with brownies for dessert. We have a delightful view from our room and it is so nice just to do nothing but enjoy this superb hotel/resort.
We do manage to get caught up on our blog before going to bed. No telling when we will be able to post again.
Tomorrow we fly to South Africa, pick up our car and head to Kruger National Park for our self drive safari there and in Addo National Park; all part of a driving tour around the East and South coast to Cape Town where we will board the Queen Mary on April 18 for the last leg of her world voyage back to Southampton in our Queen’s Grill suite! We came over to Sydney on the Queen Elizabeth in steerage so this is going to be a real treat!
