Maybe our brains became addled by too much sun. Perhaps it was a heat mirage just at the edge of the infinity pool. Maybe it was, in the words of the Everest Adventurer, Mallory, (if you don’t know the story; he ended up dead) because it was there! Whatever the case, we plunged into the frigid depths of our pool today. In fact, Muriel stayed in the pool for a solid 20 minutes, while “Abby the Wiser” just took photographs. Yes, we all feel like sending the weatherman a thank you card for another day of great weather but three of us did push the envelope by thinking it was unheated outdoor pool weather. Hannah and Muriel did do their best to pose with warm smiles in the pool and Jacuzzi but I believe closer inspections of the photographs will reveal a hue of blue in their lips. It took Muriel the better part of the day to warm up again.
We spent a lazy day reading and bit of planning for the rest of our trip while the kids studied. Every few hours we hear the wail of the mosque’s call to prayer which from this distance is soothing if not a touch mournful as it floats to us across the water of the bay.
We saw the daylight dissolve into another glorious sunset which bodes well for tomorrow. We are all thankful for the pleasures of the day.
