Prior to getting on island, the one thing Joy requested to do was "the beach with hammocks." So our first day on the island, we headed to my favorite, Rum Point.
This visit did not disappoint. We had beautiful weather, enjoyed the hammocks, did some snorkeling, read in the shade, got drinks, browsed the gift shop. It was the longest Brent and I have stayed there, and it was so fun!
On Tuesday night, we headed to AlFresco for dinner. We just missed the sunset, but still got these great beach shots outside the restaurant.

The next day, Joy and I had Brent drop us off at lunch at Camana Bay. We saw a movie and then spent the rest of the afternoon checking out the observation tower and shops. We spent a good portion just relaxing on the rocking chairs outside the book store too.
On Thursday, we planned on going to Grand Old House's Pasta Night. This was the first night of Pirates Week, and there was CRAZY traffic. It took us an hour to get to the restaurant, and then once we got there, it was closed for a private party. We were so bummed. We decided to salvage the night and head to Abacus instead.
My pumpkin tortellini (pictured in the middle) was amazing! It broccolini, toasted almond, roasted apple, and parmesan cheese.
Thanks to Remembrance Day, we had a long weekend to enjoy together. Those pictures are coming up in the next post...stay tuned!
