It was a yummy breakfast across the road from the station and then we took a taxi to Tesco's the supermarket for a food shop. The taxi waited for us and we had to wait for store to open at 9am but by 9.30 we were on our way to the Boathouse resort. It's a beautiful complex of 3 high rise condo's and separate villas set in lovely gardens with interconnecting swimming pools that take you right down to the beach.
We are in Condo C on the 3rd floor overlooking our pool and the rest of the complex.
Rest of the day was slow with sleep in afternoon to catch up from the broken nights sleep on the train. There was some rain soon after we arrived but it cleared after lunch. We sorted our wifi connection and was able to send yesterday's pod entry. Decided to explore the seafood restaurant next door and we walked around the road to it about 10 minutes which would have been no problem except for the not so friendly big black dog that set the adrenaline levels up a bit. Restaurant was lovely and our table was on sand overlooking the beach. A balmy evening with light breeze, candlelight on the table, with the glow of the squid boats on the horizon. We shared battered king prawns, stir fry prawn and garlic and oysters in glutinous flour with steamed rice. Very nice. A cocktail each and a glass of house white made for a lovely evening. We returned barefoot the shortcut along the beach 100m and so avoided our friend black dog.
This is a very nice resort but it is a few kms from the town centre and so without a car you would have to taxi in and out. There is a restaurant but it is only open Sat and Sunday. However on the plus side if it's peace and quiet you want then this would be hard to beat.
28/7 quiet Saturday - sleep in till after 8 gym time and a swim then breakfast on the balcony. Now back down by pool checking mail.
After lunch decided on a walk up the road after owe plan to rent a tandem fell in a heap when we discovered the bikes were only for use in the resort!! Had ideas we could cycle into town. the walk discovered a little shop that sold drinks etc and another pack of wild mangy dogs who didn't speak English but got the message that they weren't welcome. Decided to return and bought some beer at 28b a can. Just got back in time as a rain squall came out of nowhere and we nearly got drenched. Correction Mary got soaked robin ran faster! Plans for a beach walk now delayed due to the weather. Beach walk resumed at 5pm and ended in light rain at seafood restaurant next door for a cocktail and dinner - fried rice, stir fry asparagus and prawn and chicken and cashews. Yum!
29/7 breakfast in bed and then a one hour beach walk followed by a cool off in the beachfront infinity pool. The tide was right out so it was easy walking and tomorrow we plan to walk into town and then taxi home. A lazy afternoon is planned and dinner tonite at the lighthouse restaurant on site.
Well the restaurant was closed!!! So had to go next door again - another lovely meal. Off to town in the morning to have a look and sort out our visa's.
