I started my day by going to the “water aerobics” class at my gym (Sugar Bay). It wasn't really aerobics- my heart rate never really got up there, but it was good muscle work and it was fun. The instructor did a good job of using the water as resistance (for increased muscle work) and using it as a flotation aid (for jumping-type moves that are difficult on land). It was cute that she kept trying to motivate us by telling us that we need to work hard to get a body like Michelle Obama. Apparently, she is the standard of fitness that everybody here wants to achieve. After class, I hung out at the pool with a couple of the other ladies and even got a few laps in.
On my way home, I tried to stop in town to pick up some things I needed. Because it was Saturday and there were no cruise ships in, a lot of the shops were closed. The bookstore I've been trying to get to was closed, the souvenir shop with the jams was closed, even most of Port Zante was closed.
There was a little hole-in-the-wall bakery, Fancy loaf, that was open. I stopped in because I was pretty famished. I asked the guy behind the counter what is favorite pastry from the display case was, and he pointed to something with cherries on top that looked delicious. I was excited until he called it a danish, as I'm not really a big fan of danishes because they're usually too dry for me. I got it anyway and eh even heated it up for me. Yum! It reminded me more of a cinnabun than a danish in that it was moist, had just he right chewy/fluffy texture, and was the right level of sweet. I was very happy with my choice and would recommend it to anybody. I didn't really see that much today, but I did get a good workout and a lot of sun, so I took a nice afternoon nap. I went to be relatively early because I had to get up early the next morning to meet a friend and go to Nevis.
