The girls are back.....


We are back from our weekend away and we feel that we are rested and ready for the onslaught of the season. We settled into our hotel room, went for a swim, spent some time in the hot tub and sauna. We were starving so went for a fairly early supper at Baahn Thai where we ate much spicy food. After walking around a bit we went back to the hotel, dropped off our coats etc, and went to a cafe in the bottom of the hotel complex. I had never experienced the incredible taste and texture of a flourless chocolate cake. I enjoyed it so much that I am endeavoring to make it for tomorrow night's bookclub.
After dessert, we thought we should hit the pool again. We traipsed our way to the pool in our robes and on rounding the corner, we were met by two men coming out of the pool area. They greeted us with " Oh man, there are four of them!" We had a good laugh and enjoyed some more relaxing, 'til we decided that we were ready for some wine and snacks. Once back in our room we got comfy in our jammies, broke open the wine etc, and spent the rest of the evening enjoying good food, and some interesting conversation! At two we turned out the lights, at two thirty we were being woken by the phone. The front desk was calling to tell us that our pizza had arrived. I told the guy on the other end that we had not ordered any. He wished us a good night and we managed to go back to sleep. Until six thirty that is when the alarm clock went off! We went back to sleep 'til almost eight at which point we went back to the pool.
We then hit the market, went out for brunch , and then went across the harbour to spend the rest of the day and evening shopping. We ended it all off by having chinese food for a late supper, then I got dropped off and the others all went on to the valley. Good times with good friends. It doesn't get much better than that!

Flourless cake.... hmmmmm. Any kind of chocolate cake sounds good to me.

That is just a wonderful idea. Sounds like a chapter from a "How to Love Yourself" book. You actually went out and had a weekend of very fun therapy. Good for you.
