Where I stayed
Bill paid, we strenuously hiked the five minutes it took to get to our almost exact same position on the beach as yesterday - and just in time to catch the old couple frog-marching along the sand...
Even though the tide was out somewhat we ventured into the water for a swim - it was during this activity that Paula noticed what looked like a brown plastic bag floating a couple of metres away and cast the remark "It's not a jellyfish is it?" to which Vikki replied in the negative
Thinking that we had avoided all stinging sensations, Paula then pointed out that we were surrounded on all sides by billions of miniature discus like jellyfish - one of which, contact lense style, had taken a liking to Vikki's left nipple...ouch!
With the sun being scorchio and swimming out of the question Vikki went clambering over the rocks in search of shade whilst Paula roasted herself like a pig on a spit.
After a few hours we returned to Zackry's with the sun on our skin enticing us into an afternoon session of cold beers so we sat at a picnic table in the hotel courtyard and the Chang went down very easily indeed!
We were soon joined by Janet to chew the fat and when her and Sam went in search of sushi we adjourned to the bar, having purchased noodle pots and crisps for dinner, where we played cards and hit the voddy, dahling...!
Several vodkas and a banana colada (Yuk!) later Janet joined us to play cards as Sam and Sam had rekindled their love affair it seemed and we had a good laugh and a chin wag over several more drinks.
Sam, moody at having lost one of his hareem, wanted to close the bar at 12.30am - which was just as well as we were three sheets to the wind and have to travel to the north of the island tomorrow.
