Swimming at Hotel Del Coronado

The Labor Day holiday falls on the first Monday of September.

Mimosa Mondays are featured at the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado.

Win. Win.

Upon entering the spa facility, we were handed our beverage, given a tour and lead into his and her relaxation rooms to....well, relax and sip our drink prior to our facials.

I went for the BE ORGANIC (which involved cleansers and oscillating brushes and enzymes) and convinced my loving spouse that the COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF was super manly and beneficial for his skin.

The bonus was an infinity pool.

And spa guests could stay ALL DAY!

View from the path.

View from inside the spa pool - hotel,  beach, palm trees and a bit of a
fashion show from all the tourists walking by in the latest resort wear.

So much fun.

After almost 5 hours at the spa (the majority of that time submerged in the crystal clear cool water) I was convinced (by a hungry spouse) that it was time to get out.

We took the advice of my aesthetician and walked down Orange Avenue in search of Leroy's.

They offer an extensive cocktail menu and a long list of craft beers on tap.

Ballast Point Piper Down and a Moscow Mule

Holy Cow Burger with Truffle Fries and the Fritto Misto

This fancy thing was parked out front.

And we passed this cheeky message down the street.

What a day.

Super cleansed faces, ultra-hydrated (one might say prune-y) skin from hours in the pool, tasty food and a lot of sunshine....

Get yourself to the island.

Preferably on a Monday.
