Day #5 – Hole in One

Tuesday, October 11, 2022

We went up to the top floor of the hotel to Jimmy’s Crow’s Nest bar and grill for drinks, food, and to watch the sunset. They even have a countdown clock over the reception desk in the Lobby and one outside the restaurant. And as the time runs out, the crowd starts the final countdown, and the bar tenders ring the bell at the moment the sun sinks into the water. They then turn on the twinkle lights and turn up the music.

I had some excellent wings for dinner. We had a big night of drinks and laughter. Fun times.

However, I wasn’t laughing this morning. When I woke up, I didn’t know if I had a migraine, the Flu, or Covid. But I felt bad! Finally decided it was a self-inflicted nasty hangover. It’s been a long time since I have had one of those afflictions. Ugh.

While Lisa, Brian, and Chuck went to the pool, I took Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, put a cold washcloth on my forehead and stayed in the bed. I declined the offer to go out to lunch. However, about 1:00, I rallied and was ready to go when they got back from lunch. Chuck bringing me a piece of homemade carrot cake from the restaurant helped also.

We went to a near-by mini golf course. I liked the course because each hole was different and challenging. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I was able to putt a hole-in-one and ended up with the best score of the four of us (two over par).

After we finished, Lisa paid to hold one of the many alligators they had on property. This one was named Sparkle. We all got to pet it. She said its belly felt rubbery. The handlers said they keep their alligators until they are four years old or four feet long, whichever comes first. There are several alligator places around Florida that will take their big ones.

Once we returned to the hotel, I went with Lisa and Brian over to the beach to take their picture together. They looked very cute.
