TRAVEL THERE: FINALLY, THE SEADUST DOES US RIGHT
After our breakfast, we explored the hotel a little more, discovering a few spots we’d missed before like the adult pool and the ball courts. After that we returned to the balcony.
Our Favorite Spot
I’ve said it before, but I will say it again. Our balcony was our very favorite thing about the Seadust. We stayed out on the balcony for several hours. I continued to read my book and Bill browsed the internet with his tablet.
I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our time there, silently sharing some time of relaxation. Occasionally Bill would show me some nugget the internet had served up. There would be movement from time to time, shifting our chaise lounges to avoid the direct sun, stepping in the room to get an item or just putting down what we were reading and standing at the railing.
Eventually, our breakfast faded away and it was time to find our lunch – even though that meant going back to the Buffet. We made a list of the things we wanted to do else where in the resort.
- visit the gym
- fly our kite
- drink margaritas
- try out the adult pool
A Quick Visit to the Gym
Before we started eating again, Bill wanted to try out the gym. We’d taken a self-directed tour of the facilities before. The gym is on a lower floor near the spa. The entry area is beautiful and serene. The spa looked quite inviting, but since I can go to a spa at home, I don’t use my vacation dollars there.
The gym was very clean and well-equipped. A nice attendant welcomed up and offered to help if we needed him. We went on into the gym and made ourselves at home.
I was wearing flip-flops, but didn’t intend to workout in them. As I dug in my bag for my closed shoes, the attendant popped by to let me know I was not allowed to workout in flip flops. Well, duh! That’s the reason I’m over here in the corner digging in my bag, but thank you for sharing this very obvious information. I guess they do have people who think wearing flip flops is appropriate for the gym. I’ve seen people who thought they were appropriate for funerals, too.
Bill was already on the weight machines when I climbed aboard a stationary bike for some cardio. I was on vacation, so I didn’t dial in a vigorous workout, but after 10 minutes I realized it was a little warm in the gym to workout in comfort. After another 5 minutes I was off the bike and ran into Bill, who was coming to tell me he was experiencing the same difficulty.
We’d put it off as long as we could. We were going to have to go back to the buffet. It was that or the outdoor snack bar at the pool. We’d watched other people fight off the aggressive gulls and curious pigeons. So we went to the buffet – again. This time it was a little more of an adventure than it had been before. Come back next week and see what I mean.
