For lunch John took me to a Japanese pancake house. They had such intriguing combinations and I even got to try their white chocolate milk which was beyond delicious. I settled on the rum raisin pancakes. They were two stakes made by sandwiching two pancakes with a cream cheese and raisin combination, topped with powdered sugar. It was a cute little shop and it reminded me of when I was younger and used to dream of owning a little shop. I always imagined it to be a used book store and coffee shop, but now as I am continuing to discover my undying love for ceramics I image a little gallery shop with ceramic pieces decorating the walls and shelves, offering a small selection of coffee and tea to drink with maybe some baked goods. However, I would just be happy to have a studio and shop just for my ceramics. Everything else is just the whipped cream on top.
While going on my afternoon snorkel trip I started to see forms and textures that I would love to incorporate into some of my pieces. There were patterns and creatures that would look magnificent painted with loose brushstrokes on a series of underwater themed tableware. I saw some more creatures I hadn't seen yet and got to try out my new fins. They were fantastic. Even with the incredibly strong current I was able to go out further from the shore and in less time, then on my way back to the beach I just floated along like a piece of seaweed drifting with the waves.
The water did feel a little eerie with clarity not being the best. The tide was stirring up the bottom of the ocean and loose pieces of seaweed and other plants were floating everywhere. I kept waiting for the jaws music, luckily it never played. However, I did get the crap scared out of me by this guy. He was quite large and in charge.
