Recognition where it’s due…

Let’s face it, I was never going to have worked at Publix long enough to be invited to one of their awards ceremonies.  Not when I took a part-time job as a second career, and not really understanding what a great company it was going to be to work for.  But the friends I made there have outlasted my years at Publix, and my friend Dee asked me to come with her as she was honored for her 25 years with the company.  The fireman’s daughter in me doesn’t mind admitting that I have never been to a resort as lovely as this one.  The view from the balcony of our room was spectacular right from go.  Hence the panoramic photo above,  I didn’t bring my camera so it was the trusty iPhone 7+ to the rescue.  I took a few pictures right away, and I could also see that the sunset was going to happen right out there, I’d have a front row seat.  Except the banquet might not end in time for me to see it.  Except it did, barely, and I snapped one picture as I raced to find my way back to the room for more photos.  I made it in time for a few photos, and I even made it back to the banquet in time for dessert.  Perfect!  Well, the only thing that would have made it more perfect was if we had thought to bring bathing suits so we could ride the lazy river rafting pool that was drifting along out there.  Now that would have been the icing on the cake!  Sorry, bakery worker pun there…04-06-19Omnifirst04-06-19Omnifirst04-06-19Omnifirst204-06-19Omni104-06-19Omnisunset04-06-19Omnisunset2
