Planning a trip to San Pedro hopefully within the next month and would greatly appreciate some recommendations.
I was on a cruise in Jan '04 and did the Shark Ray Alley excursion which was really cool but we were only there about 30 minutes. Lunch was included as part of the trip. Don't remember the restaurant but it was at the south end and I think it was upstairs over a bar. I was by myself on the excursion ( long story ) and had some time to kill before returning to the ship so I walked into town. I feel in love with the beach and every thing I saw. I've wanted to return but also wanted to share the sights with someone special. This trip will be limited to only 3 - 4 days. Joyce ( the someone special ) works about 70 hrs a week, has been dealing with some of her own health issues, has a mother who most likely will not make it through the summer, and a new granddaughter that has had a few problems. She needs to get away.
Joyce said she would like to sleep for a day and just sit on a beach without a care. I would like to re-visit Shark Ray Alley this time a little longer amd I'll drag her along. Other than that probably won't try and do a lot other than enjoy the sun and sand.
On the internet have been looking at Seven Seas Resort, Corona-Del- Mar, The Palms, and Coral Bay Villas. Would like to have a kitchen, view of the beach, ( maybe just sit in the sun and get hammered 1 day )and be able to play in the water. I do not dive but have snorkled several times. Besides the trip to Shark Ray alley where would you reccomend going to just enjoy the water close to where we stay, or is that possible?
SOOOO any recommendations on flights. We are in St. Louis, Mo ( Go Cards ... oh yeah, that was last year ) looks like American through Dallas ?? Ideas on places to stay, restaurants, or cooking ( I'm the cook )bars, excursions.
Thanks for reading this novel, and in advance thaks for all the help.
Looking forward to maybe getting to meet some of you in person.
