The Adult Pool -- my favorite spot at The Verandah

Today after breakfast (sausage, eggs, belgian waffles) I got acquainted with what turned out to be my favorite spot at The Verandah. The Adult Pool.

The landscaping around the pool, the peace and calm, the sound of the waterfall in the pool, the little huts around the pool, I could have made myself at home in this spot every day. The proximity to the restaurants, our bungalow, the Quiet Beach and the front desk was perfect. This is also the games spot: pool table, ping pong, foosball and shuffleboard. We relaxed here all day until it was time to prepare for tomorrow’s return home: printing boarding passes, packing, etc.

We’d made reservations at Buccaneer’s for dinner tonight. I realized and was informed that Buccaneer’s and Nicole’s are opened on alternating nights. After a tantalizing dinner off the menu of rib-eye steak and the fixin’s, we went down to the main bar where they had a different band tonight and they were fantastic! There was a female and male soloist, both of which could blow. The female singer was great in getting the audience involved. She’d go out and grab people to get up and dance and their music was really easy to party to. They had the otherwise lackluster Verandah guests up and partying like I hadn’t seen on the other nights. But the band does make a big difference in getting the audience to react. If you’re good, it’s easy to get audience participation. I wish they’d been there all week. Today was a great day and I was really blessed and thankful for the chance to enjoy it and salvage a bit of fun out of the trip...
