I slept in until a little after eight. Since I didn't have anything planned for the day I spent most of the morning going through my digital photos (three + hours - it's the first time I've done anything with them since I'd arrived on Pohnpei!) Midmorning Stacy came by to see if I wanted to take Mark and Karen (a couple from Sipan we'd all met at the Village after we got back from Ant Atoll) to Nan Madol - I agreed since it sounded like a good afternoon filler - even though I was sure I'd get lost.
After lunch I set up the kayaks and met Mark and Karen and after studying the maps with Stacy we were off. It was surprisingly (for me) easy
On the way back to PATS we spent some time chasing the large sting rays around the lagoon, and the stopped at Joy island and spent an hour lounging around in the shallow water - just enjoying the perfect sunny afternoon and trying to cool off. At four thirty we realized what time it was and bolted for home - at about five the tide would be low enough to make things challenging. We followed one dead end channel through the mangrove trees before we found the right one. From there on it was easy and in about twenty minutes we were back at PATS.
After a quick (but needed) shower I met Stacy, Mark, and Karen at Stacy's house for a beer. A couple hours later we'd been joined by Tyler, Nicole, and Jeanette and we were out of cold beer. Just after dark Mark and Karen decided they needed to head back to Kolonia and the rest of us headed up to the house Stacy is watching for a burrito diner and to watch "There's Something About Mary" Right after the movie finished it was power off, but this time I was with a group so didn't get at all lost.
