The sun comes up around 5:30. Cal gets up around 6:00 for reading and coffee. I get out of bed around 7:15. After a cup of tea we walk down our steps to go for a swim. At 8:15 breakfast is delivered (I told you it was paradise), and we eat inside in a room where the doors slide into each other so that we’re practically outside. I’ve been doing a lot of staring into the ocean and sky, but I’m getting some reading done. Around 9:45, we set out for a walk–around the island, then up a steep hill for an incredible view, then down the other side–about 50 minutes to an hour. Then swimming and/or snorkeling and reading and staring. One of those tropical drinks I mentioned, and a lunch of grilled fish and salad. Nap time. Swimming. Reading. Staring. Another tropical drink and then a walk to dinner. A walk home under the stars and some bedtime reading.
