CRANE'S BEACH HOUSE
GUEST QUARTERS: A few hours before I checked in, I received a text message that Crane’s Beach House had an opening, and I was upgraded to its luxury villa. Needless to say, I was eager to see what awaited behind the doors of Villa No. 7; the door, by the way, was sealed with a “sanitized and sealed” sticker, and I later found the same sticker sealing the refrigerator door and toilet as well.

Por lo general cuando pienso en la dádiva viene a mi mente también esta analogía: ¿Cómo puede Dios bendecirnos si nuestras manos están apretadas, aferradas a todo lo que poseemos?
