The third day we woke to sunshine! And a whole different island Like all the tropical places you have heard/seen of. We swam in the (cold) water. I SNORKLED! I have never snorkled! It was great. I was a little scared at first about it but got into the swing of it once I just relaxed and told myself it was just like looking through an (under) water garden. I saw fish just going about their business on a Monday afternoon. What a treat to do that on a Monday afternoon! Daise ate and slept well, the adults ate and drank well and we just had the sort of good times you have when you are on holidays – making do with what you have* (*kitchen sink for bath!) And we got to do it all with family. Together. We really were lucky.
And the only way we could get Daisy away from the place was the promise of a return trip on a plane home again. Thank goodness for that. Let’s hope the passion stays burning for 24 hours on route to Paris. Yes it truly was an escape from all this nasty financial/global recession stresses to paradise!
