    ... and culture while swimming and of course working on my tan! I haven't been on the lazy side every day though! I have been kayaking to the island we can see from the beach, where I went snorkeling in some amazingly clear water and got to see loads of different fish, some of which reminded me a lot of the fish we used to have in our aquarium when I was a kid.
