Checked in on the first after a nice drive from Florida. We thought we would go to Alligator Soul rest for dinner. Closed! Nice walk, we did find a great hamburger at a very fine place just around the corner. I turn 64 today. Looking forward to many more years with D! Temp outside is 41 degrees inside 44, no heat! Well I’ll make coffee for D and I, no cream or sugar. Next move would be breakfast, hall door locked so took outside door to front door – locked. Went back to room and called front desk. No one answered. Did they close the city and we missed the word? 7:33 cold, hungry, no coffee. Time to go back to old Special Forces skills. 7:45 called out, no answer. Ready to take advice from ghosts at this point. What a way to start 2009. Really all this is true. But we are having the time of our lives. NEVER HAD SO MUCH FUN. Well it’s time to set the record straight. The desk and restaurant do not open till 8:30. My mistake. Our room was not equipped with coffee creamer and sugar because the regular cleaning staff was off due to the New Year. Well that makes sense! We are still having a great time. Room was warm last night and no contact with Anna! Look forward to a great night in the bar and chatting with local color. People are great and friendly! First day at age 64 was great. Things worked fine!! Today we plan to walk the city. Had fun all day. Weather was fine. All shops open and food was outstanding. Came back to our room for rest and fun! What’s this our room was left open by cleaning staff door wide open! Well nothing was missing and room was very clean. I thought I should advise the staff about security problems but to my surprise no one was home! Ok it had to be Anna. She seems to be the only force active in this place.
