I went to bed at 630pm last night and slept 12 hours, waking up once to see if the sun was coming up. It was nice–I missed a rowdy game of Yahtzee in which W won. I would not have taken that well because A) I am a poor loser and B) W is an even worse winner. NEVER play monopoly with us. You are warned.
Yesterday we went on a snorkel trip. I loved all of it. The 1.5 hour boat ride was fantastic with baby tunas, and once a baby flying fish, jumping everywhere and I got prime seating on the bow because everyone else was scared. They have not done as many stupid things with boats like I have. They have not steered their little inflatable with body weight at the front while planing across Lake Washington–that was stupid. How else was I supposed to get the tiny inflatable to plane by myself????
Snorkeling was good- we went to a rock off Turtle Island. Weird at first, because we were super exposed but the fish were friendly (I’m guessing well fed with bits of tortilla). The little black ones would attack if you dived down to far and got next to their home. Being attacked by a little tropical fish, though surprising, is pretty cute.
After snorkeling the boat took us to a white sand beach full of other tourists. It was nice to splash and swim but the highlight was hanging out with a Peccary. Peccarys are cute. He/she just snuffled around looking for scraps or played dead in the sand rolling slightly to get the best belly-scratching angle.
Here is a picture (not of our peccary but of A peccary:
