For us to just get up and go any where on our beautiful island takes little to no planning at all. We just wake up look at each other and we knew it. #roadtrip time. So when my dear future hubby Garfield told me to pack for a road trip on Saturday morning I did exactly as I was told.
I "got packing".
Packing for me is a challenge. Its like participating in the Olympics.(I think).. its like hmmm I don't know, its just HARD DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. I never know what to pack . Actually I never know WHAT to leave!. This situation further made it worst as I had no idea where he will be taking me this trip. I love surprises but at-least give me an idea what not to take for peas and dumplin sake man... "Garfield if you ever let me show up for an engagement party in a b-rider (extremely short-shorts), tank top and not glamed up I will be saying NO!"
you were warned.. love you too hun :)
So there I was packing, shorts, tank tops, bikini (let me take two, no three), undies, dresses (maxi style and one formal), knicker, leggings, sandals (let me take 4 for each outfit, no let me take these two as well), earrings, necklace and in the end for a one night stay in Portland I was all ready to go with two travel bags, two broad hats and a small bag with sandals, my laptop bag, my kindle and two phones.
I AM HOPELESS RE PACKING ( sobs)
SOOOO the Destination was unknown to me at first which made it even more exciting as I packed. We arrived in Portland mid-afternoon and made a quick stop by the hotel as we had planned to head to Boston for lunch and visit a friend. Sea bell..... WOW ! WHAT A BEAUTY! IT was love at first sight.
View from the pool
Across the road from the beautiful, relaxing and calming waters at Sommerset Falls is Sea bell Resort. The architecture, the layout, the use of natural resources in the landscape brought it all together to give it that wow effect. I was quite pleased to be relaxing at a 5star hotel in beautiful Portland without the hustle and bustle of the usually busy/crowded hotel experience.
The Room was clean, stylish, I loved the decor. Food was beyond good and great value for money. The 4ft deep salt water infinity pool made a great focal point. For hours I sat near the edge just looking out in the ocean.
WHAT A VIEW HUH!
The property, rooms and common areas were well kept. Customer Service was at its best from the Security who opened the gates to welcome us to the gardener, receptionist, chef and house keeping staff.
LIFE IS AMAZING!
I would recommend this hotel to all our friends. You will not miss the north coast and you will create beautiful memories in Portland on the black sand..
