It actually felt like the warmest day so far this year – it was practically Mediterranean! When we got there at 3 p.m. it was the height of the afternoon and it was steaming. Even in shorts, I felt overdressed. Once we got on the water, it got a lot better.
It did get a little hazy because of my special dietary supplement of prescription codeine, and coupled with the heat, I felt quite sleepy for most of the time and didn’t get very much into the onboard conversations. Ever the understanding hosts, my partner’s parents didn’t seem to mind. After a few hours on the water, and with the sun a bit more bearable, we slowly made our way back to port, bought some local Chinese food, and had a great, satisfying dinner on the water.
We left at the magic hour and called it a summer day more than well spent.
