Oh, that week in January. Dreadful. I was told that the security people at the Marriott had to work six floors each, when they really needed two guards per floor.

Re: Just returned home...

You misunderstood what I said. I'm talking about the people who stay for their designated week or weeks and don't set foot NEAR the beach. Instead, they just occupy lounge chairs either at the pool...
