I got a late start walking. I kept putting it off and putting it off. I finally got my butt going and headed down Ocean Blvd. I ended up at the Sky Wheel! It was five miles both ways, but it was worth it. I went into the Gay Dolphin while I was there. I got a few little things and then walked to the wheel. My friend and I rode it once before on another trip at night. I’d never ridden it during the day, so I got a ticket and went for a ride. It was so pretty during the day! My first beach picture post has a few pictures from that. I enjoyed the ride and it gave me a chance to relax and cool off for a few minutes. (The gondolas are air conditioned!) After I got off the wheel, I went through their little gift shop. I saw bottled water and it had a Sky Wheel label on it. I thought, water and a souvenir in one. I took it too the counter and almost fell over when she said $2.70! I didn’t say anything, I just paid it and went on my merry way.
I walked the five miles back to the hotel and changed into dry clothes. It may have been September at the beach, but the weather was like high summer! I relaxed for a bit and then my friend and I headed out for dinner. We finally got the Dairy Queen we’d wanted earlier in the week. There was a putt putt place next to it and we went to it. It was called Cancun Lagoon. We played putt putt there for quite a while. Afterwards, we went back to DQ so I could get a sundae. My friend stopped at Cook Out and got himself a shake. We also got a few things to eat later. We headed back to the room. I was going to the pool, but when I got down there, there were way too many people. I decided to just walk on the beach and then go back to the room.
We ordered a really late night pizza (11:30!). I ate a couple of pieces and then crashed. I had a long tiring day. 🙂
