We arrived to the Pale Moon condo in Palmetto Dunes gated community around 7:30AM yesterday. Let me tell you, it was a looooong drive. A bit cramped, and not much sleep happened, but we made it in one piece. We lounged around and re-grouped ourselves for a few hours in the beautifully decorated condo. The pale blues, yellows and beiges, calming us easily. It was raining outside anyway so we didn’t feel rushed to do much of anything.
The rain stopped around 10, and we woke ourselves up, the sun began to shine, and we decided it was time to go shopping.
Not before first admiring the palm trees…
The island is full of vegetation even though it is winter time. Tonnes of tall old trees and an abundance of golf courses. Just about 15 minutes away from Palm Moon, there are two massive outlet malls called Tanger One and Tanger Two.
The only problem was deciding which stores to go to…
Hint: We didn’t actually have a problem deciding where to go to. And we also found LOTS of good deals. Personally, I couldn’t resist purchasing some new flip-flops to fit in with the sunshine. Afterwards, we headed back for some refreshments and munchies before dinner.
Around 7PM we went to Wild Wing – a restaurant that boasts over 50 different wing flavours. The bar was packed and there was a 40 minute wait, but we decided that the wait was alright as soon as we found out we could order buckets ‘o beer.
For the main event, we ordered two platters of 10 different kinds of wings, some including Flaming Parmesan, Garlic! Garlic! Garlic!, Mesquite, and Ol’ Yeller (honey-mustard). We also ordered some delish Spinach dip and Buffalo Blue Cheese Chips, Red Dragon shrimp skewers, and Dad and I split some of the most amaaazing Baja Fish Tacos, so good, even Johnny liked them!
After pulling pretty much all-nighters in the truck ride, most of us had no problem falling into a deep, calming and resting sleep, dreaming about all the fun in the sun yet to come.
