We came, we saw, we conquered....

... and yes faced with an unending supply of intriguing foodstuffs my resolve went out the window and I indulged.
The scales are up the tummy is bloated but the clothes aren't tight. Go figure that? I was probably a day away from total disaster, we came home just in time. A week back on my normal lifestyle and I will be O.K.
The weather was postcard perfect. Sun, the odd puffy cloud, temperature that never went below 30 C during the day and cooled of to 20C in the evening. No cooking, cleaning, no problem. I swam, read, played in the sea and have come home sporting a toasty tan. I never even got a sun burn!  A good time was had by all. Two weeks was perfect and hopefully we will do it again next year in another locale. We will have to start saving our pennies now!
Flying into Toronto and hearing the temperature was -15C was enough for us to want to hide on the plane and sneak back to the island ... lol
I missed having peaches on my cereal, 2% milk, Canadian coffee. It was a small price to pay for 2 weeks of respite from the cold.
last day on the beach
