I got done with diving and filling tanks early enough to hop on a boat
and head out
past some beautiful scenery
to anchor by a remote beach for some shell collecting
and music making
aboard the Heineken barge.
All this sacrifice is worth it for smiles like this.

On Sunday I was very relieved to learn that I do not have any form of bee allergy after being swarmed by bees and collecting 11 stings. After determining that I was fine, I channeled my inner Hermes (with some help from my feather-collecting friend, LauraLee) and ran the Women's Race.
I came in 23rd out of 261 participants and was 5th in my age group. I also shaved one minute off my best previous 2 mile time.
I think it was the feathers.

After killing hundreds of lion fish with no problems, today I got stung on the finger.
This is before the swelling got really bad.
And its caught on video.
At the beginning of the vid I look up and see one of two sharks coming for the lionfish on my spear. I hurry to get it off and get stung. After I get it off, I kick it away because the shark's still coming, but it turns and at the end, shark #2 gets it.
Then later on the boardwalk some guy shows up with bagpipes
to salute the Saharan-dusty sunset.
You just never can tell around here.
