Shade seekers #2

Hey, it's the weekend! Let's indulge a bit, and take advantage of a great shady spot, under the pergola, next to the pool at the Coconut Point Hyatt Regency Hotel.

"Strange animal fact" #3
The average person eats eight spiders in their sleep in their lifetime!

This is not an animal fact Izzidee, this is a human fact, why would any spider commit suicide jumping into my mouth ?
idiot spiders

i feel sorry for them Izzidee.
since i am not an average person i might have swallowed 16 spiders.
Sorry spiders, May your soul rest in peace.

Hey, I don't think I want to try to sleep in the shade on one of those lounges after having just learned I might be eating a spider unawares!

Un barbecue en plein octobre, tu en as de la chance, ici il faudrait mettre un parapluie sur le barbecue ;o)
Bon Weekend

A barbecue in full October, you have chance of it, here it would be necessary to put an umbrella on the barbecue; O)
Good Weekend

That's quite a pergola - you did a great job of composing that shot.
Spiders are good for you :)

I like spiders but not to eat. Saw one this morning going across the floor and I was stuck on the toilet. I hope he escaped.

I like your photograph. Very nice. I thought it was your patio until I read the rest of the story.

Love your shady photograph.

But I don't believe your 'fact' for one single minute! If we eat spiders in our sleep, do we wake and complete a report? Who is watching us during our sleep? Ah, perhaps the OPCS? (Organisation for the Prevention of Cruelty to Spiders.) Do they keep these figures? I've yet to see a spider write...

After consideration, I think this is one of Isabella's April Fools' stories except it's not April 1st. I don't fall for it, Madame Izzy.

Great Isabella,
We are there and;
I bring in a big bag: my reading book with me and my music, some suncream and my glasses, water and my gsm (mobile phone).

I love to sit in the shade hmmmmmm , great chairs so comfortable...fantastic warm weather... so nice this temperature and this shade, so wonderfull it is here...

I see the waiter walking ther e and he's coming to ask me what I want: Me: " Please can I have a fresh fruit-drink and mayby a fresh salade"? Thanks.

I'll ask You: "hey Isabella what do you drink/eat"? Shall we go for a swim first? etcetera....

have a great weekend!!!!!:)

Spiders are your friends. Why would you want to eat them? They've never hurt you or cheated you or stolen your favorite toy so I do not understand why this must be.
I bet some of them are waiting for you in the shade.

Nice hotel! Too bad it isn't closer to Ft Myers and my kid!

When are you coming through TN on your way home? Are you heading through Nashville?

I could be comfortable there!

Nice shady pergola spot for the weekend, I like the idea for your series...your blog is always interesting to look at and to read too.

Marie said...

A nice place to go on vacation.... Your photo is very beautiful.

The vegetation in my region is very similar to the vegetation in Florida (except that we do not have so many orange trees :-))

Bet that's one expensive hotel!

Kate said...

I'm with Jilly! Who's watching?!

Sonia said...

Oh my! Is it truth? "The average person eats eight spiders in their sleep in their lifetime!" I don't like spiders at all!

Nice place, Isabella!

jessica said...

oh no. I wonder how many spiders I have eaten already.
