We usually arose at around 8:30 - incredibly energetic and all set to take on the day. Which we did by moving from bedroom to balcony.
I could have booked a meal plan with our vacation but did not do so. One reason is that Francine and I are not usually very hungry in the morning - having eaten relatively late the night before. Another reason is that breakfast costs about $20 per person. However, the primary reason is that you could not beat the view from our balcony in any restaurant. And by preparing our own breakfasts, we were able to enjoy them at our own pace - and discuss how we wanted to spend the day (which was not usually much of a decision for me).
