Huntington Beach Staycation

28 August 2016

Unfortunately Mike had a bout of some type of GI bug. It was nasty last night but thankfully it subsided this morning. He decided to go home at checkout and I stayed with the girls to enjoy the afternoon at the pool. The girls enjoyed playing monkey in the middle and trying to do tricks. Katie took a selfie as we waited for our car. Tomorrow begins a full week of school. Bye bye summer. 😞 It was wonderful!!!

Dinner after mass tonight at the fancy restaurant at the hotel. It reminded us of Spain, especially the whole leg of Iberian ham. Yummy food! Now we are nestled in for a movie and room service dessert. We are spoiled!
Pictures are a little out of order because we used Mike's phone too. Went to the pool after sander castle building and boogie boarding. Chips and a margarita were in order. 😊
The Hyatt offers sand castle building!
Last nights swim, my beautiful prayer space, breakfast...including Katie's happy 'muffin' face. We've decided she dreams about muffins.

Off to the dive in movie and night swim!
A quick browse through the shops after dinner. Delaney was quick to find the mermaid dolls and Molly found the puppets. There is also a view from our room. So beautiful...
Checked in and enjoyed dinner and a fabulous margarita! TGIF
We began our staycation by visiting Sister Joan in her HB rehab facility. She looks amazing!
