Today was another free day on Daydream Island for those of us who didn't do the sailing. In the morning, we went for a nice cold swim in the giant pool. Then Anthony, Lee, and I wanted to go for a guided rainforest walk, but Lee and I were late and missed the beginning of it. We had to run around the whole island trying to find the group, and we went the wrong way a few times and had to backtrack until we finally found Anthony and the rest of the group. It wasn't exactly a spectacular tour anyway.

Lee went parasailing today, and Katherine rode in the boat with him. I would have liked to go, but there was no more room. Boo. Then the sailors came back, and we did a fish feeding tour thing where we got to hold sharks and starfish and things and feed rays. Tanja lost her grip on the shark and it hit Katherine, so she got to say she had been hit by a shark.

Today for lunch I went to a little bakery-type place on the other side of the island and saw a nice looking ham and cheese croissant. But when I paid for it, they shoved it in a panini maker and it was just all flat and squished and not very appetizing anymore. Oh well. We had some time to kill before dinner, so a bunch of us went in the hot tub.

Dinner was decent at least. It was Chinese food at the same buffet place where the pizza was on the first night. The dessert table was different but still good. But the BEST part was that they had ice cream with tons of toppings. I had like two or three bowls of ice cream, since I didn't eat much of the real food.

After dinner, we went back to the other side of the island for free drinks (I never even used my voucher) and dancing. I was just standing there not dancing, and Nathan thought it would be funny to dance up against me. At least everybody else seemed to find it amusing. On the way back, we hit the awesome playground again. Katherine, Jo, and I went to bed, and Jessie went downstairs for a while. She was like a ninja when she came to bed, though. I don't even remember if she woke me up while getting into the bunk above me. The girl's got mad skillz.
