I wonder why it is that humans love being near water. Ocean, lake, river, stream… property is most desired when it’s overlooking a body of water.
So here I am in the Maldives. Sitting outside on the villa’s deck, looking down at squid, fish and other aqua beasties swimming below me. Perhaps if I am not so lazy later I will don mask and fins and go snorkeling. Stepping off the deck leads me immediately into a mass of coral. Though the water is so clear here I don’t see a need to get wet when I can simply look down.
I’ve grown to enjoy beach vacations. Primarily because there is nothing I must do. A totally blank slate when it comes to activities for a day. The most rigorous decision I need to make is whether I want to go eat or get back into the bed.
And the joys of wireless internet! In the past I may have felt a little strange about bringing my laptop on an escape, but now… I admit to myself that I enjoy using the computer, I enjoy being connected, and it enhances my vacation when I can get online.
Look forward to more posts of me doing nothing in the Maldives…
