Trouble In Paradise

To put it bluntly, I'm married to Jimmy Buffett. Not really, of course....but Mr. W is so obsessed with the sun + the sea, if he doesn't fly to St. Somewhere every now +then he goes CRAZY.

That's why long before he + I ever met, he traveled every November to the Virgin Islands. Now that he has met me, I get to tag along.


Because this year we've taken more trips than we normally do, I argued that we should forgo the walking on sand for a few days, and instead, put our money towards replacing the nasty, tattered, old carpet in our house with hardwood floors...that we could walk on ALL of our days.  

I lost this argument.

So...flights were booked, and plans were made for us to make our annual escape down island.

This weekend we got the call that our resort, which usually looks like this...



...thanks to a mighty tropical storm, now looks like the carpet in our house this...

Oh no! Well y'all should head down here to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Alan Jackson is doing a free concert next weekend and it's absolutely beautiful down here and I'm sure a lot cheaper too! Not the St. Somewhere the Hubs may be accustomed to, it's still a beach and there's plenty of sun!

OH NO!!!! That's such a bummer! Can you reschedule or ANYTHING???

We could have canceled w/out fee at the resort, but to rebook our flights would cost $500, and any changes in fare that there might be. So...we're still going. Some pools are fine, just not the main one. The beaches are swim at your own risk....
