Have you ever had one of those weeks when EVERYTHING goes right? Well, we're at SweptAway, approaching the end of our stay (returning home on Sunday), and its ALMOST one of those weeks.
Arrival on the island was as smooth as its ever been. USAir went off with nary a hitch, arrival at MBJ was on time, and it took us longer to get to Immigration than it took us to get through it. No lines at about noon on Saturday... who knew?
Tiny hitch in the express check-in process... our repeater packet had been processed, but was somehow misplaced. We received in in our room within a couple of hours.
Only other hitch has been the beach. Weather's been great, despite those rain, rain, storm, rain forecasts everyone's been concerned with, but a weather system to the west has been raising havoc with the beach. We've had heavy surf all week, fun to play in, but the beach is suffering. I'm told that the beach party for tonight has been moved inside the Palms due to lack of beach. Oh well, poor, poor, pitiful me.
Other than that, staff, food, drinks, accommodations, shopping have all been great. We've succumbed to beach gravity yet again, but that is mostly due to the successful surprise of the arrival of our dear friends of nearly 40 years! My wife was absolutely FLOORED when we met them at the Beach Bar!
We'll see about putting up a more thorough review on our return home, but there really isn't much to add. Its been a great week to chill, relax, eat and drink; and to spend beach time out of our normal summer in Wisconsin is always a privelege we'll cherish, thanks to SweptAway!
When we leave on Sunday, our countdown to May2012 officially begins. See you all on the other side!
