At the beach
We made it to the beach. The beach area is mostly rocky but we did find a small patch of sand and we are planning on playing there this afternoon. They also have a large swmimming pool with lots of different depths and swimming areas. However, the water does not look like it has been treated correctly. It's pretty cloudy. And Kerwin ends up with so much water in his mouth when he's swimming, we've just decided to stick to the beach while we're here. Our room is spacious and has air conditioning and running water. No TV but we can get internet access in the lobby area. The food is all buffet style. There is one big eating area that everyone comes to. You can get drinks throughout the day but you can't order food.
Kerwin enjoyed the beach yesterday for a little while but then he acted like he was ready to go. We'll see how he likes it today when we go to the more sandy part. Unfortunately, we don't have any "beachy" toys: buckets, shovels, etc. We'll just have to make the best of it. The other kids we are here with are a little older and have these really hand-held video games and MP3 players. Kerwin thinks they are the coolest things.
The pictures are of Kerwin playing the video game, our room, the cloudy pool, the eating area and the beach. We'll try to take a lot more pictures today.
