We start the day by cruising around the bay on our paddleboard boat. It’s low tide and we come across a fascinating little isolated current that looks like a river running through this particular section of the ocean. (I’m certain there’s proper terminology for what we saw but if you hadn’t noticed by now, I’m clueless about the ocean) The current is strong enough that with our motor on its slowest setting, we’re sitting perfectly still in the water. It was fascinating.
By mid-morning the wasps have returned and their numbers have grown. For whatever reason they’re really attracted to the truck and trailer. I try to play it cool and read my book on the beach but tire of being harassed so we both retreat to the camper for a few hours.
By afternoon they’ve thankfully cleared making it easier for us to shower and make dinner. Or so we thought. We didn’t realize a few had gotten inside our shower tent. Somehow I don’t notice this or get stung while showering but Mark isn’t so lucky when he showers after me. At least he’s stung on his neck and not other more vulnerable parts (!!) but it’s still damn painful.
All in all it’s a pretty low-key day as our minds are starting to make the shift towards going home and the busy week that lies ahead to get moved back in to our RV.
