I set out due east and paddled 19 miles on the same bearing with a tailwind. At my midpoint, the nearest land, a few miles off, was a small island at the head of three bays.
I was getting tired. The last of my gogo juice tasted off, probably from the heat. I forced it down and immediately regretted it. My last two miles were mired in sea sickness.
A vast beach spread out ahead of me. Wind surfers were flying off waves and banana boats were zooming around. I don't get banana boats.
Apparently my stop for the night is a popular tourist hotel destination.
I don't have a room and the security people and staff don't seem to want me around. No, I may not use the wifi. Hopefully they won't trouble me after they realize I'm sleeping here.
I found a tree with sweet berries growing in the higher branches, so I climbed it and gorged myself until my fingers were purple. Yummm.
