Relax and admin

After breakfast at 0730, the tide was right for a swim. I quickly changed and went for a cool dip, lingering as much as possible to fill in the free day. I eventually came out of the water for fear of having had too much sun. After a quick shower, I checked the time. It was only 0930

I did some admin in bed. A storm came up after a long period of dark clouds. Thunder, lightning, torrential downpour and wind. But finished up rather suddenly in time for me to meet Doris at Derawan Ocean Divers at 1200.

There were no thorny issues to resolve and we were happy with the plan that we discussed yesterday. Doris and I were able to have lunch straight away at her guesthouse next door. She was a lovely keen traveller, having been travelling for 2 years on a shoestring. Being a solo girl wearing a selendang, a lot of Indonesians take a liking to her offering free accommodation and taking her under their wings. The hospitality she sees far surpasses what I get, which is already quite remarkable.

The rest of the day was free to relax. I did take an early evening walk around the island which took 30 minutes.
