I've been to beautiful places and done nothing but watch the rain pour down for a full week. Talk about depressing.
This time, it was a pretty bad hotel ... but the weather was ideal and we we able to get up and out and really enjoy at least that.
I suppose, in the end, brilliant weather trumps luxury. Mother nature rules. Especially if you are a fanatical photography enthusiast! Even more so if you are a couple and both of you are enthusiasts.
