Out of office (on a beach)

I’ve been quiet too long here. I have plenty of pictures that should go up here, but the truth is, I’ve been too busy trying to get things in order for our vacation to bother posting. Now, half-way into our vacation I need to at least share a few holiday snaps.

For now, you’ll have to settle with a few, although I’m sure you’ll think it’s plenty. I’ll pester you with a whole lot more once I get home next week.

In all honesty though, I have taken way less than I anticipated doing. I’ve been to busy reading books (finished four so far, I think I’ll go through 6 before the end of this 10 day escapade), biking around the island (and getting lost!), hiking, snorkelling almost every late afternoon while the sun sets. One morning we woke up to an intense rain storm, and we could barely make out the waves breaking at the coral reef halfway to the horizon. It was odd, intense and ongoing with cold winds, not at all tropical. We huddled up inside, read on and later that afternoon the wind slowed down, the rain stopped and we headed out snorkelling, seeing some really big fishes.

This morning it was raining still, but it stopped around mid day, and we hustled up on our bikes and headed for a hike. Note to self, going hiking on a trail that “passes through a small river twenty times” the same day the rains end might not be the the brightest idea we’ve had. We don’t regret it at all, wading through the crisp, clear water, listening to the sounds of the rainforest and befriending a cow or two.

With that said, I am going to sign up, pour myself a glass of wine and keep on reading. Cause that’s simply what I do best when on vacation. Until later!
