There is an amazing golf course at the resort that was designed by Jack Nicklaus. It has an island hole. The golf cart path is usable during low tide, but a boat takes you to the green during high tide. We actually didn't play, so Steve was just dreaming, or visualizing, in this picture!
Now for the imporant part...the work part. I helped Steve one morning as his assistant, aka hot suction girl! It was actually quite fun, although I do tend to get distracted easily so I think Steve was very glad to replace this suction girl with the more focused, but also hot, Mother-in-law! I was so impressed with Steve. I knew he was a great clinical dentist, and I knew that his bedside manner was good (not in that way...get your minds out of the gutter!), but I didn't know he had the patience of Job. You know a person is patient when they don't even raise their voice after having to tell a little boy, in Spanish, to open his mouth grande for the 100th time, and I mean that literally. I was also impressed with his Spanish. Apparently he learned some important dental terms at his previous dental gig, and then he would throw in his Portuguese here and there. It seemed to be quite effective. By the way, all these kids were actually very happy children, as was Yolanda in the picture above. For some reason they didn't smile in pictures unless you asked them to, and I kept forgetting the Spanish word for smile.
