"This view never gets old" - We must have said this 100 times.  So relaxing & gorgeous.  We enjoyed breakfast at Sunshine Grill, afternoon drinks at Ritz. Fabulous boat rides to Starfish Point & Stingray City w/ relaxing drinks/ lunch at Rum Point. A wonderful family reunion - from Vancouver, Denver, Kansas City, Ohio, Santa Barbara. Big Love & Big Thanks!  (rented 3 condos - all heavenly).
