Now, I am content to just sit in my lounger, drink free Heinekens, and cool off in the pool all day long, but Patti gets an itchy photo finger, so she heads off down the beach to explore. Once down the beach a bit she gets this shot looking back at the Sonesta…..



The West Indies Sports Park, where you can play all day for $20…..







Patti is now just strolling down the beach taking pictures. Enjoy!
