A day at the Naples Ritz
Our friends Judy and Gary arranged to come visit us after completing a Caribbean cruise. Since their son Byron works at the Ritz Carlton chain of hotels and resorts, he arranged for a room at the Naples complex. After they were settled in, we agreed to meet them for a day at the private resort beach. We caught up with them as they were having an impromptu breakfast in the parking lot. I am not sure if that is actually a Ritz standard or not.
However, they discovered that they had several pleasant surprises in store for them. They were informed that their son had planned a Spa treatment for them, so we went to the beach and enjoyed the amenities there. When several hours went by, we began to wonder how they were doing. They called and asked that we join them at the Spa café, where they had again been surprised by Byron-as he made a visit from New Orleans.
All in all it was a great day at the beach and a chance to catch up with friends.
