Wednesday was the day that the exhaustion seemed to hit me. It was hard for me to lift my head off the pillow in the morning, and when I finally did get up, I could only seem to keep my eyes open for 15 min. at a time. I think I slept pretty much to whole afternoon, and by the time it rolled around to go to dinner, I was good as new. It was amazing how it hit me, but I was glad it was a day that we did not have anything planned for, that way I could just relax and get rested.
Thursday Curt and I went horse back riding at our resort. This was the first time that Curt had ever rode a horse. We took some trails near the resort, but it really was not a true trail ride. The horses had been through it so many times, we did not even have to lead them. At one point my horse stared to turn around, and I tried to stop it, and the instructor said no, this is where we have to turn back.
On Friday we went on an excursion offered through the resort. We went to the Anton Valley (which was about an hour away, but it was all through windy, curvy roads).
We went for a hike through the rainforrest,
All the animals were in cages, but we did manage to see one monkey that was loose in the jungle. On the way back to the resort my motion sickness got the best of me, and I had to make the bus stop on the side of the road so that I could get out and get some fresh air. I felt the same way when we were on the way there, but I managed to get through it. On the way back I would have lost my cookies if we would have not got stopped when we did.
Saturday (our last day) was spend just lounging around, taking in everything. We laid by the pool to catch the last few bit of rays that we could. We took a walk on the beach, and pretty much did anything we wanted to do for the last time.
Sunday we had to be up at 5:30, and have our bags at the bottom of the steps for 6:00. Our bus left for the airport at 8:00a.m. It was an early morning, but we had managed to get our selves well rested throughout the week, so it did not effect us as bad as it did the week before. Sunday was the only day that we got to see the sun rise, and it was beautiful. There is something about seeing the sun rise over a palm tree, that just quite is not like looking at it over a big maple tree.On the way to the airport we got to see the Panama Canal for the last time. It is just amazing how you can cross a bridge, and on one side of the bridge is the Atlantic Ocean, and you look to the other side and it is the Pacific Ocean.
Cara and Justin picked us up at the airport, and we arrived back in Listowel around 9:30pm. Lexy and my mom were there to greet us. Curt's mom came over as soon as we got home, and we opened up our wedding presents. Lexy was glad to see us home. She has never really been away from us for any lengthy periods of time. A couple nights was the most she had ever been away, and this time it was for 11 days. For the next couple of days she stuck by our sides like glue. I think that she was trying to tell us something!!!!!
It was a wonderful honeymoon. Very hot, but absolutly wonderful!!!!!
