Day 3: Long walks on the beach!

Aaron woke up early, while I stayed in bed until 9:30am!  Ahhhh, the joys of being able to sleep in!  When I woke up, I walked out to my balcony to see this... (my attempt at a panorama... in 4 pics)

Aaron and I both headed down to the restaurant deck for some breakfast!

There's nothing better, in my mind, than a huge plate of fruit!  YUM!!

After breakfast, we threw on our bathing suits, packed a little bag and walked down Diniwid Beach over to White Beach.  (This picture is of Diniwid Beach and our resort is at the far end of that peninsula!)  The end of White Beach is about a 10-15 minute walk from Spider House.  We walked from our place to the middle of White Beach (about an hour long walk!)

When we got to the center of White Beach we did some shopping (I bought $4 sunglasses and Aaron bought 2 pairs of $6 boardshorts), ate lunch on the beach, and swam in the clear turquoise waters!  (Sorry no pictures... we'll be back there sometime soon and will take some!)   We spent most of the afternoon at White Beach, then took a tuk tuk back over to our resort!  We dropped our bag and walked the path back over to Diniwid Beach, eased into the water (it's a little cold) and snorkeled over to our place!  There are not a lot of fish here, but the ones that swim around our resort are gorgeous... mostly yellow and black stripped like these Moorish Idol fish...

When we got back to Spider House, we met some really nice guys from Holland, Denmark, Lichtenstein, and Germany and spent most of the early evening hanging with them on the deck!  I love being able to meet people from all over the world when traveling! :)

We took another walk down the beach after the sun had gone down and attempted to take some night photos of the area.  It's gorgeous here at all times... morning, noon, and night!  We're sitting on the deck now, overlooking the sparkly water, with soft reggae music in the background, waiting for our night snack - a big plate of fresh ruit for muah and some potato wedges for the guy! :) After snacktime, we're gonna watch an episode of Grey's Anatomy on my laptop and then call it a night!  I'd say it's the perfect way to end a great day!
