In preparation for the beach, Lisa and I decided we needed to go get some snorkels, so on our way, we stopped picked some up. It's funny how hard it can be to pick a snorkel! Upon arriving, we found a nice spot on the sun-covered beach to make camp for some lunch, snorkeling, paddle ball, and relaxing. We made lunch, gave it 2 minutes to settle, went for a snorkel, relaxed a bit, went for another snorkel, got an ice cream and coffee, and decided we had enough. It was a great day for the mind and spirit. I wish I could provide some pictures, but we didn't take the camera because we wanted to be able to leave our stuff on the beach with as few valuables as possible.
A couple times after training this week, Lisa and I have gone to some local swimming holes, too. Although they don't have the view or mystique of the Mediterranean, it can be argued that they are cooler because they are hidden in the hills, mountains, and valleys of the country. We have a smaller one close to town that is fun for a quick dip and cool off. Then we have one out of town a bit that has much more space and some awesome rock/cliff jumping (we learned from the locals!).
