Paradise Found

View from the restaurant, over the pool to the ocean

I think we really have found paradise.

We started our R&R on Monday. We did a little bit of work in the morning, then spent the day doing laundry and packing. We got to the airport at 8 PM for our 11:20 PM flight…I mean, our 2:30 AM flight. After a maddening 3 hour delay, we were off. We figured that we would miss our connection in Bangkok, but lo and behold, Thai Air saved us! We were picked up at the gate and whisked to our connecting flight – and even our checked bag made it! We arrived on time in Lombok, Indonesia, after our layover in Bali.

The hotel picked us up and drove us 1.5 hours to our destination. It’s really lovely – thanks to Scott and Laura for the recommendation.

Since Wednesday, we’ve done nothing but relax. And by nothing, I mean nothing. Breakfast…then lay by the beach…then lunch…then lay by the beach…then afternoon tea…then dinner and maybe a movie in our room. Sleep like clams, then get up and do it again the next day!

The only down side to the trip has been very bad news from home. Dail has been hospitalized again and the prognosis is not good at all. This is one of the times when it’s hard to be so far away. John and I both would love to be able to see him and Nancy – it has made us really glad we saw him when we were home last fall.
