Just a quick update today. We are enjoying our last day at Ladera before we have to leave at 4pm for a red-eye to London. Because Ladera is SO nice and hospitable, they are allowing us to stay in our room until 4 (even though check-out is at 11am), so we basically gained a full day of fun and relaxing!
It stormed all night last night - great for sleeping, but not so great for horses. We were supposed to enjoy our horseback riding tour this morning, but because of the lingering rain, lightning (which really frightens horses!), and muddy trails, they "strongly recommended" that we not go. We were disappointed, but appreciate the advice - better safe than sorry! - and were happy to enjoy one more day in paradise. We were also fortunate that they gave us a couples massage in place of our horseback riding tour that we won't be able to take - it was relaxing and fantastic!!!!
So far today, we've been lounging around reading and enjoying. One awesome benefit of the frequent rain bursts today was awesome rainbows at breakfast!!! I'll leave you with a few photos...
