Four days at the Ritz Carlton....

....and no activities planned. I'm tagging along to the wife's nursing conference in Amelia Island and will have a lot of free time just me/myself/I.

Any suggestions (saucy or otherwise) to fill in the time?

Ah, Florida in July. I suggest you stay in the air conditioning, watch tv, surf the internet, and drink beer.

If you want to brave the humidity, I hear they have six golf courses on the island.

$15K for the "Presidential Suite"....nice.

I've decided to pack my 12ga and warm up both barrels of the Beretta. Jim, if you were closer I'd join you for dusting some clays!

I stayed at the San Francisco Ritz Carlton a couple of years ago. What a nice hotel! It takes some real effort to wring that much enjoyment out of a hotel, but it's fun to try.

You could look up one of my life long friends that lives there and hang out with him.
