Hello All,

I'm in the middle of 6 days here on Isla Margarita, and I've had no problem finding things to do.  Today is going to be another 'do nothing' day.  I headed out to the beach at about 11am, and chilled in a beach chair for quite a while.  The beach was certainly packed on a Sunday afternoon.  There seemed to be just as many locals and Venezuelans as the were foreign tourists, and it was a very happy scene.

After a while I abandoned my seat and played in the sand for a while.  I know that I am 41, but I cannot resist playing in the sand.  I made a very nice little bay surrounded by a nice wall.  It was about two meters long by a meter wide, and the waves actually washed in a little fish to swim around in it.

I should have at leastmade an attempt to put some sunscreen on, but I figured that I would be ok.  I was exposed for about an hour before I put my shirt back on, and I did end up a little pink on my back.  Hopefully it will not be too bad.  On the way back to the hotel I picked up some snacks, and checked into the prices for renting a scooter tomorrow.  It was very cheap at only 10 BsF per hour or 80 BsF a day.  I told them I would be back tomorrow.

I fell asleep pretty early watching the IndyCar race from Iowa on my laptop.

Later, Phil
