Day 11: Chillin’ at the Beach and Pool

We got what we were looking for - some rest and relaxation. We ate an expensive, crappy breakfast at the resort that we wouldn't have done had they not given us a voucher for the issues the previous day. Next, we went to the beach where we found it would cost about $40 to rent …
