Simply put, this was a completely awesome day. It started with a boat ride to islands - two of my favorite things. The islands, being Japanese islands, also had mountains - another favorite thing.
We whiled the whole day away on a beach - another favorite thing - snorkeling - yet another favorite thing (which is basically like swimming in an aquarium, making it a combination of two other favorite things).
As an added bonus, the day ended with another boat ride!
The only downside: I also ended up with a wicked sundburn, of the itching, twitching, mind-melting variety. (This despite generous lashings of 50+ sunblock.) Sunburn aside, this may have been the perfect day.
On the plus side, the burn inspired me to invest (finally) in a good UV shirt. Fair-skinned folk like me simply aren't cut out for unadulterated sun.
