Away for pre-Christmas

We were away for for a few days before Christmas at the Hyatt Chesapeake in Cambridge. This is our 3rd trip there but the first time in the winter. The last time we were there was probably about 4 years ago. It was blessedly quiet and we had the pool to ourselves. We were only there 2 nights but the stay was pleasant enough. The food at Waters Edge Grill was still as good as before (and still as expensive) but the $99 per night for the room more than made up for it. We were also upgraded to a deluxe water view room from a standard which gave us more space. In fact there was so much space it seemed almost empty. It could use a couch or something.

The decor was pretty much the same and I had thought the rooms would show some wear and tear but it was less than expected. The wallpaper was still the same but the bed spreads seem to be different now. The bathroom was large and clean - no mold, etc (unlike ours!).

Internet access was provided by T-mobile which I decided not to get for $5.99 per day. Guess what - the world did not end without any internet access although by the time I checked back at work I had to fish through 100 e-mails.

All in all it was pretty peaceful and spent most of the time eating and reading. One reason to get away I suppose is that there is less guilt in just reading. If we had been home I'd have been feeling guilty if that was all I did.
