I was able to locate the library and sign up for a library card via John. I am already almost done with the book I checked out. It feels so good to be able to read for leisure and enjoy just vacationing a little bit. Even when I went to Hawaii during spring break, though it was vacation, I was still very busy with phone interviews, writing my written comprehensive paper for my thesis work, and starting to plan for a wedding. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed Hawaii, but! I am really enjoying being on vacation and I love Japan. Yesterday for day 26 I did about the same thing I did for day 25. I read my book, I went snorkeling, I ate delicious food, and I enjoyed great company. I did get to go to a hibachi grill for dinner. The food was phenomenal and the chef had tricks I've never seen before!
While snorkeling I got charged by a quite a few parrot fish. I think they are laying their eggs. At first it scared the crap out of me to have a fish charging me, but then I remembered, oh yeah! I'm bigger than it and it's not going to do anything to me. So I stayed back just enough to take some images without invading too much space. The bonus of getting charged by a fish, I got some nice pictures.
Also, have I mentioned that I love the water? I have my own mask and snorkel, my own booties for the fins, and now! my own pair of diving fins. I am going to give them a go as soon as I sign off here. I promise to have more adventures this weekend, but until then, here are more images of my snorkel adventure and a few images that I couldn't download because of a crap computer. Best wishes!
