    ... on Deck instead of in one of the nice air conditioned venues. There’s a nice breeze today. It’ll spare me the dizzying walk around the track which takes 7 turns to make 1 mile. In their infinite wisdom, the designers of this new ship decided to eliminate the Promenade Deck which allowed you to circle the entire ship. A little more than 2 trips around that would make up a mile. Okay, so off to Zumba I go. I made it to the half way point. My efforts ...

    ... on the beach including a hummingbird which you can just see at the top of one of the photos I will add here. On the day when we went on our trip, people from other hotels were going to spend the afternoon on our island's public beach as part of their excursion. There's quite a few shops and restaurants on there during the day. We can go on there if we want to, but there's no point when it's busy with intruders and all the sellers try to sell you stuff. It's much nicer when ...

    ... more like "e-perar") Anyway, the marshlands around the lagoon were lush but the lagoon itself didn't have a beach and I was complaining about the noise from the big crashing waves so he offered to show me a calmer section of the beach. Hairo led me to a peaceful and serene cove at the south end of the beach and spent the rest of the day with me, lying in the sand with me, joining me for a swim and chopping a coconut for me to sip on. ...
