No work, all play, OK…

When I was packing for this trip, I optimistically included a pair of running shoes and some workout gear. I had this idea that I’d do a lot of running – maybe along South Beach at sundown, or something – like I have in previous trips to Florida. Actually, though, since we’ve been here, the most energetic thing I’ve done has been regular dips in the pool to cool down during lengthy reading sessions. Oh, and the shopping, obviously. Which really IS my only cardio right now.

I don’t think either of us realised quite how much stress we were under before we came out here, though, or how good it would feel when the pressure finally lifted and we were free to lie by the pool all day, reading. It’s awesome. And now, if you’ll excuse me, I think there’s a sunlounger with my name on it…
