Our "sandy" beach
Waking up at 5:30 AM to change my catamaran ticket, after one hour of sleep, I found that the foam party had soaked by ticket, and it was worthless.  I went back to sleep for a few hours, grabbed some breakfast, and went with some of my new friends in search of the island's sandy beach.

We found a beach, but it was small and crowded, so we decided to chill on a pier that was just down the shoreline a bit.  We sunned, swam to a nearby island, and had a relaxing day of it.  Just as I was getting out of the water, I stepped down hard on another sea urchin (I know, I know, but Croatia has a ton of them in the water), and I had a painful reminder of a pleasurable day.  We packed up our stuff and went to catch a bus back to town, with me limping in the rear of the procession.

  My Parisienne friend Marion stopped an empty bus that was going in the opposite direction from town, whose driver was finished with his shift, and persuaded him to turn around and drive us home.  I have no idea how she did it, but sometimes you just don't need to know--I do think that six girls in bikinis did have something to do with it.

Back in Korčula town, I got a little TLC on my foot from a few of the girls, who I think secretly enjoyed watching me wince everytime they jabbed a needle into my foot in an attempt to remove one of the 30-odd needles that were stuck in me.

Afterward we had a nice dinner, shared some wine, and headed back to the hostel for some more craziness.  The party was on again, and a few drinks later two of the English girls, living up to the party reputation of rugby players, were downing beer bongs at the bar.  I had to get up at 5:30 again for my catamaran trip, so I called it a night at 4 AM.  I think when I get back to the U.S. I'm going to need a vacation from my vacation.
