    Favorite thing: My BIL described this process to us, and Bob's reaction was that I should never ever sign him up for something like this. But my BIL seemed to really like it.

    "Litho-Cal-Salt Glow
    You will then experience an aromatic body exfoliating treatment with a dual purpose: as the surface of your skin is polished and cleansed, impurities and dead cells are removed.

    "A Brief Rest
    Duration: 15 minutes

    "Oligo-Wrap

    "Float and Breathe - Dynamics of Breathing in Watsu Pool
    Your highly trained professional spa therapist escorts you to Watsu Island where you will experience your first lesson in the art of the proper dynamics of breathing. You are gently immersed in the warm water of the Watsu pool where you will be floating over the arms of your Watsu therapist. As you are taught how to profoundly breathe in and out, you will feel your body gently sink into the water as you breathe out and then softly rise as you breathe in. As the dynamics of proper breathing are assimilated, and they become part of your breathing habit, ultimate relaxation can take place. You are then floating freely, feeling weightless, calm and unburdened, transported into a new-found state of relaxation. Bathing suit required.
    Duration: 30 minutes

    Fondest memory: "Watsu Massage
    Get ready to experience the ultimate massage in water: Watsu. As you float freely within the warm water, your massage therapist commences with a stretching, soothing and rehabilitative massage. As the massage proceeds, your body gracefully flows and moves without pain or limitation. You slowly become weightless, feeling the releasing effects of the massage as soreness and fatigue are reduced while spine tension is removed. Flexibility, relaxation and freedom are reinstated as you enter into a state of emotional, psychological and physical inner and outer peace. Bathing suit required.
    Duration: 30 minutes

    "Walk in the Clouds Cocoon Hydra-Aroma Wrap

    Bike Paths

    biking is always a fun activity

    Favorite thing: Ok. I've been accused of being a little bit grumpy about my stay at the Plantation on AMelia Island. So I will give credit where credit is due. They do have a great system of bike/pedestrian paths. There are seven miles of trails that meander through the sometimes jungle-like property. Bicycles are available for rent at about $25 per day.

    Highrises on the beach

    by zrim Written Apr 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    empty beach (but this is at 7:00 a.m.)

    Favorite thing: I'm not really a fan of hanging out on the beach. A walk along the shore can be nice a couple times a year, but nothing is as boring to me as plopping down in a beach chair and letting the sun do a number on your skin all day long. Give me forests, marshes and jungles anytime.

    Then there is the matter of all the people you must share the beach with and these ghastly highrises. I'm sorry, but a penthouse room overlooking a beach and the ocean just does not do it for me. But I guess I'm in the minority with this opinion because obviously people come from all over the nation and even the world to hang out at these beaches. And they pay a stiff tariff in order to have that oceanside perch. Well, they are welcome to it.
