Where I stayed
Its hard to do, I have mastered the art of being on vacation, I know how to turn the light bulb off the moment I step off the plane, and be part of something different, its the reason I go away in the first place. It truly is a art, being in the moment, and letting go.
But for others, its not as easy, and you can spot them in a heartbeat
Christine and I signed up for a sunset fishing trip, an adventure out on the high sea, hand line reel fishing, with bait, and a fish BBQ after back on shore. It sounded like a great opportunity to experience a great local excursion, and catch our dinner.
We waited out on the dock for our departure, and I spotted a group of Asian tourists waiting close by. The women were dressed in low heels, dresses, and carrying Prada Purses. Where are they going I thought...Is there another tour today? Christine and I were prepared to get a little dirty reeling in our fish with our t-shirts and khaki cargo pants. Our vessel pulled up to the dock, a large motorized long tail with enough room for about 30 eager fishermen. We approached the boat, the group overdressed for such an excursion approached as well. " Are they going on our excursion as well? Do they know this a fishing trip? This is going to be interesting...
The water was a little bit rough tonight, not too much for the casual boater as myself, but not for the sea weary.
The fancy group sat in the back of the boat, oohing and awing every time the boat swayed back in forth holding on for dear life ( it wasn't that dramatic) but they sure acted like it was. Christine and I sat up front with the other seasoned fisherman types, from Germany and Switzerland. Then it started, the noise of people loosing it. You could hear them loud and clear, all of those fancy dressed women were leaning over and throwing up over the sides of the boat. Now I know what its like to be on a bad boat ride ( Sara can contest to this) but this was not a bad boat ride.
But this was just plain ridiculous. They were unprepared, overdressed, and were not going to ruin our fishing trip
We didn't have much luck on catching any fish, but we both got some pretty big bites, but nothing we were successful in reeling in. But we savored every moment being out on that beautiful ocean, since this was our last night on our private island getaway.
