Tough Job

Days 4-5
Monday has arrived and the lovely Avril has to return to work. Her company is located a five minute walk from the hotel. I walk with her and we have coffee and breakfast together in the Green Leaf Cafe, located in the adjacent business park. We are greeted each morning by the cute, effervescent Crystal who welcomes everyone with a smile. The food is great and inexpensive for breakfast and lunch. It offers an  alternative to the hotel restaurant high prices. The hotel has great happy hour prices, but the rest of the menu would make it difficult to remain in bounds of even Avril's generous meal stipend.

When Avril goes to work I am left to my own devices, what will I do?  My room has high speed internet access, a huge screen t.v. and a free morning newspaper. The hotel has a pool, spa, fitness center and beautiful grounds with a large collection of my favorite flower, bird of paradise. So many things to do, so little time. It's a tough job but someone has to do it - at least until happy hour and the wife returns.

Happy Hour and Avril's return!
