I just fell asleep as I was opening to start writing ~ I woke up with my computer still on, still on my belly, and my blog staring me right in the face! Day #2 post will have to be very short and sweet –>

I am posting a day behind real time – because it took us awhile to figure out this Wi-Fi in our room. Plus, I hope to write at the very end of each night and post the next day…
We started out Day #2 with an amazing breakfast, complete with omelet making – Yum! I had an omelet with pepper & onion, topped with salsa, a small potato, and some fresh cantaloupe.
After plate #1, I went back for a piece of whole wheat toast and peanut butter and more fresh fruit. It would be very easy to eat way too much on this trip – I am trying not to do that…
After breakfast, we headed straight for the beach. Check out all of this sunscreen Ben & I packed. Like we will ever use all of this!
^ All varieties available…
I go with Aveeno SPF 70 for my face and Neutrogena spray SPF 45 for the rest of my body. No sunburn today!
^ I applied this four or five times throughout the day
Check out what we saw on our way from breakfast ~
Peacocks –> Beautiful Birds!
^ Pretty creatures
I could not stop snapping pictures of these peacocks. There were four or five of them all gathered outside a small restaurant. They were all very calm and let me get very close. I love the back feathers! I actually also learned that these are all male peacocks. The females are not nearly as pretty.
We spent a lot of time on the beach lounging & reading. We also took a ride on the sailboat – Ben was captain. He took a quick lesson on how to guide a sailboat, and then we were off!
While on the beach, I read this book that I received as a gift last Christmas. I am glad to finally have a chance to read it!
^ “Fit from Within” – 101 Simple Secrets to Change Your Body and Your Life – Starting Today and Lasting Forever…
I love the book so far and I enjoy reading the small lessons. I have marked many ideas that I want to share on my blog. As I read, I enjoyed glass after glass of water. It tasted great in the hot weather.
^ Ben is reading John Feinstein – “A Good Walk Spoiled”
The sun set at 5:45pm this evening…
^ We watched this before going inside to clean up.
We met Ben’s parents at a Greek restaurant called Neptune’s. I had a Greek salad and grilled chicken. Both were delicious and filled me up. I had two vodka & Diet Coke’s with dinner, and lots of water.
This was our first full day & it was great. I am exhausted and we have a lot planned for tomorrow – starting with a 4 hour catamaran tour. We are meeting Ben’s parents for breakfast at 8:30a, which means it is now time for bed. Ben is already snoring beside me…
M&D, KT and Lil ~ Miss and Love you all very much!
