B surprised me and got us a night at the Waldorf Astoria. I have never stayed at a hotel so nice in my entire life.
And since B has the pleasure of being a Diamond Member (from all of his traveling days), they even gave us an upgrade! The place was absolutely beautiful. Our room was right on the beach; they gave us a free appetizer and two free drinks.
Also, while you’re laying at their beach, they come around with fresh watermelon, the cabana boy spritzes water on you, and they have popsicle hour. Oh yes, none of this you have to pay for. Cabana boys sure are the greatest invention ever. None of the bartenders or cabana people were even from the area. They were all transplants, saying they came from various US states and fell in love with it. Not really too hard to see why.
Ahhh, to live like the other half even if just for a day.
It was a man-made beach, hence all the rocks and stuff at the shore. But it was pretty fun to take a walk out on the pier and get right in.
Also got to have my first cigar with my B on that pier. It was a little flavored one, but it was still fun.
