Vistana Beach Club

We had a late check-out from PGA and were hoping for an early check-in at Vistana.  However, we got there really early, around noon, and there wasn't a room ready so we went to Shuckers.  A perfect way to start off the vacation on the beach.
 We had my favorite lunch

When we went back to the resort our room was ready and we couldn't have a better room, right on the beach.

This is the view from the deck
 and this is the view from the other side

Loved watching this dog on his board
 We took a walk on the beach as far as Shuckers - 3 miles round trip

and Larry took a pic of Margie and I from our deck since he walked back way ahead of us.

For lunch we took Margie and John to Shuckers

On Tuesday we hung around and at night Margie and John went to dinner with her daughter's in-laws who live here and we went to the wine and cheese at the resort.  At night it was time to pull out electronics.

Margie and John left today and Laura arrived with Kathryn.  They hung out at the beach and I joined them when they moved to the pool and hottub.
 Then we walked on the beach and collected shells.
When we were in the hottub this guy moved from the chair to my hat.  I never did get to sit on the chair.
We heard that this blue heron has been on a sight for 20 years.  He loved posing for pictures.
Laura was really good at finding shells and crabs on the beach.  This one was even big enough for me to see.
We got to go to Shuckers one more time.
Lots of pelicans, usually flying by in their V shape pods.

As part of my no chew diet I made strawberry smoothies.
On Saturday we drove Laura back to Stuart and we went on to Delray Beach to see Doris and Michael.  Larry and Michael played golf, Doris had things to do and since I wasn't feeling to great because of my teeth (see    ) I hung back and eventually went out for a walk on the beach and at night we went out to a Mexican restaurant.

 We were tired of using the awful wine glasses they had so stopped at a Dollar Store for some better glassware.  The glass on the left was what we were using for wine and vodka gimlets and the glasses we used for vodka tonic glasses weren't big enough.  Too bad they didn't have plastic.  Next time we'll pack our own.
