Spa notes, February 2012
The mauric spa: so good to be there again. I first went swimming and to the whirlpool. No one else there: luck, I thought. The round pool is like water massage. Then, to the spa floor, and the steam bath – and on the way to it I saw that in the outside spa area, people were lying in the sun in bathrobes, all loungers taken. It’s not a very large area – a smaller pool, and about 8 loungers. Ah well, so much to luck, I thought, and went to the steam bath. Yet when stepping out of it again, one of the loungers was free. So I could be outside, wrapped in my bathrobe that has a cap, which was good. I read a bit, then slept for some minutes: healing sun sleep.
