Journal Entry:
Woke up very early this morning all congested with a full on cold. Not good timing as the plan had been to dive this morning. The others all went and said it was pretty good. I slept in then organized some gear and had breakfast. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be clear enough but it seems unlikely.

Spent the afternoon hanging out on the beach while the others went fishing. I only meant to go down for an hour or two, but somehow that turned into four. I laid on the beach reading, swimming, and napping. Then walked west until I ran out of beach (1 - 2 miles). The beach here is fantastic - and pretty much deserted. Long stretches of clean white sand lined with coconut palms. Walked back to the lodge just in time to catch the others returning for fishing - they caught an El Dorado so at least they get diner out of their charter money!

Made a nice diner (fish and all) in the bunk house with a couple other travelers, and in bed by nine-thirty. My cold seems to be getting even worse as the night progressed.
