If Friday was the day for adventure, then Saturday was our day for relaxation. First on the agenda was a yoga/pilates class at the fitness center appropriately named Midsection Meltdown. Georgette was the star performer here while trying a new move on the fitness ball. After working out, we were ready to get worked on with massages at Calm Waters Spa. This 80-minute unique massage and energy experience is aimed to reduce stress, unblock natural energy and re-balance your mind. Afterwards, I felt like a wet noodle as Karen and I enjoyed some girl talk in the eucalyptus steam room.
We were ready for some down time as we sat poolside (the resort has two; one is adults-only) and some enjoyed the resort’s lagoon, which sits between the pool and the ocean. It even has a platform in the middle that you can swim to and enjoy the saltwater. After our sun time, we were ready for our sunset cruise as no trip to the Florida Keys is complete without some time on the water. Many thanks to Lauren for keeping our wine glasses full and to Elvis for providing a great game of “One Foot Boat Balance” for our entertainment.
We had one more incredible dinner together at Alma, the resort’s tropically-inspired Nuevo Latino cuisine. The meal was complete with La Crema Pinot Noir, tasty rib eye steaks and their signature appetizers, which were delicious. For dessert, we sat by the fire pit and enjoyed more wine and our stogies (just like the guys do).
Sunday morning we said goodbye to Hawk’s Cay and Duck Key. While only here for a few days, we all certainly caught a little “Keys Disease” as we reluctantly drove back home and to reality.
