I spent much of the morning swimming, reading, then swimming again, then reading while swimming. Paul and the kids tried snorkeling off the beach – hoping they could swim out to interesting territory. But what they hoped might be rocks not too far off was more grass, and the waves got stronger further out. So they returned to the villa. Shortly after they came back, we got a strong downpour (which lasted the usual five minutes). We read for a while, then in late afternoon walked down to the pool bar for a margarita. Then another margarita. Then another. We started at a table by the pool, but moved in when the first raindrops of a mega downpour began. When we sat at the table under the veranda, the bar staff brought warm towels to those sitting closest to the outside, to protect them from the rain. A great touch! We were very loud, so we bought a round of drinks for everyone around us. But it was a lot of fun. We finally decided we needed to add some food into our stomachs, so we went back to the villa and made dinner. After dinner, we played Hoopla. Then we went to bed.
