6 Sept ~ Golf with the Goats

Today I'd like to get back about an hour and half for a do over. Most who read this blog know that Mark and I really enjoy playing golf together (well, Mark likes to play with whoever he talk into it). Well, when we travel, we always scope out the nicest course to play, and have never been disappointed. Ummmm... well, let me show you just a few joys of the front nine of this "resort" course.
Yes, those are live hords of goats just walking across the fairways! I was DYING. I lost several balls simply because I refused to get out of the cart near them. And then, those lovely lizards... they were gigantic and everywhere!! The course was on the opposite side of the island from where we stayed, and it is the desert as you can see. It did have a few saving graces as you can see...the view and the company.(I've always had some fascination with lighthouses... I think they're just beautiful!)

Well, I did not make it the full 18, which I've never done. At the end of the front nine, I checked myself into the resort spa for an afternoon of pure bliss!! (= I didn't think about those goats ever again.

Tonight we headed to El Gaucho for dinner... it was fantastic! Some of the best ribs I've ever had in my life! We completely gorged! I've forgotten to mention that we made a couple friend on the trip and somehow we didn't get a picture of them. But we stayed at the bar there for awhile after dinner and drank homemade sangrias and some smoke cubans...
Then, headed back where we lost $ but still had a blast!! Do you see a trend here?
