Journal Entry:
Woke up early looking forward to a day at the beach (or maybe it was because I went to sleep before nine last night), unfortunately it was raining. Hung out reading and working on Pike until nearly eleven when it stopped raining. While eating breakfast it really started to rain - I was soaked to the skin in the ten yards between the restaurant and my room! The heavy rain kept up until about three when it stopped and the sun started to beat down. I spent a couple hours on the beach swimming and enjoying the sun until the rising tide drove me out. Had dinner at the same beach front restaurant as last night.
