Foto Friday: Antigua!


Arriving in paradise




Greeted with welcome champagne and cool towels




The place was spectacular



Tea by the sea




A glass of wine with my toes in the surf




Reading RW... ON THE BEACH (haha)




Midnight chocolate buffet - I'm in heaven




Awesome restaurant on the water, shoes optional!




BBQ beach buffet - food served over ice in kayaks!




Mmmm daiquiri




Pool-side pizza




How I spent most of my days




After a post-run dip




Classy




Sunset on the beach




We rented a private cabana by the pool for a day




Pre-dinner wine on our balcony




Strike a pose




<3




at the teppanyaki restaurant




I'm a little teapot?




Until next time...

The water looks absolutely spectacular!!!!

The Husband and I were hoping to head for a Caribbean vacation this year. But it turns out I can't get any serious holiday time until the fall. And well the hurricanes will keep me away - we just don't plan on risking it!
