This is Kate & Tony. Kate is a five-star chef and Tony is her partner in crime.
They were our gracious hosts at the Golden Pavilion for a week in gluten-free paradise.
Of course it wouldn't be paradise if Mrs. Dude wasn't along for the ride.
Each day would start with a breakfast buffet. There were many things I could not have, but Kate always made fresh gluten-free muffins for me. Thanks Kate!!
The day brought many activities. I snorkeled. Well...swallowed water is more like it.
I fished (my line is actually caught on a rock here; I just posed for dramatic effect).
I was even lucky enough to catch a double rainbow.
Some moments were just spent in quiet gratitude.
But mostly, we ate...
...and ate some more...
...and drank some more.
Heck...I even shared a Captain and Coke with Buddha.
I ate and drank much more than my body was use to so I ended up spending some quality time here.
Thankfully, it at least had a nice view.
What goes in must come off, so I made sure to get some exercise in each day.
Night times were spent enjoying the sunset...
...warming our feet by the fire...
...and of course more eating and drinking.
Kate made sure ALL of my meals were gluten free.
Even the sinful desserts. I cannot thank you enough Kate for keeping me safe.
You even went beyond the call of duty and killed this little bugger.
Thanks for a great week my friends. Let's do it again next year.
