Sea swim!

I squandered my afternoon with irresponsible napping; first I fell asleep while reading on the couch, and then when Brent went out to the office I inexorably made my way to the bed for more sleep! I have no conscience when I am half asleep, that is the trouble...

So I had time only for a shortish swim: 30 minutes in the sea. It's nice out there today - didn't see a ton of creatures, but a very active ray of some sort (with attendant fish!) and something that was perhaps a spotted scorpionfish? I need to get better at recognizing fish species - even on an ordinary little swim round here (there is not much reef right where Brent lives, you can get a more scenic swim on the other side of George Town) I would see at least a dozen different kinds of tropical fish, maybe more.

Also a good day for spotting magnificent frigatebirds hanging in the breezes - that is a bird as glorious as its name suggests...

It sounds immeasurably nicer than my pool swim! (I do like frigate birds.)

Although it was a bit of a party at the pool: Fiona, Emma, Robleh and myself.

I always find it a bit ironic that the more spectactular the vacation destination, the more my urge to nap increases.

Yes, I have one of those laminated cards that tell me the variety of fish I might see in Kona. It makes sea swimming more fun.

Dang, I wish I could swim out in the ocean everyday. I love doing them when I'm on vacation or travelling for work - can't beat it.
