Martinique — Day Twelve — the One With Me Being Lazy


Sometimes I like just being lazy. Doing nothing or ‘not much’ at best. However, to spend a proper lazy day, one must prepare accordingly…

We got back pretty late yesterday — the drive itself took a little over an hour to our villa. That meant that I was pretty exhausted from all the swimming, driving, eating and rum. Exhaustion can be battled in a number of efficient ways…

We got up before 8:00 this morning — that in itself was pretty tiring, but what can one do with beautiful rays of sunshine streaming in through the windows (apart from closing the drapes)? We had some fruit left over from our last shopping spree, so we started out with that. I don’t usually touch food if it has seeds in it, so that left me with both melons — water and regular — to devour. The next step was to dispose of the two avocados sitting in our kitchen. They gave their life willingly to turn themselves into delicious guacamole, which we then ate with a few crackers that were lying around. Having done all the eating, we needed to regain our strength, so we took the car to the nearby patisserie for some pain au chocolat and éclairs — they were extremely palatable, and I now wish we had gotten a few more. The next step was a deviation from our original plan, but since we were close to the beach, we decided to give the ocean a try, to see if it would soothe our tired skin. It did. And I managed to finish the book I was reading too — lying around on the beach, trying to regain the precious calories burned in the sea, can have that effect on people.

After getting back to our villa, we proceeded to make dinner — steaks with sweet potatoes and a tomato salad. Since consuming our succulent creation with gusto, we’ve been lounging around our terrace, doing absolutely nothing. Well, apart from writing these words.

And now that they’ve been published, I can go back to being lazy. And drinking the rest of the rum…

P.S. Almost forgot, I posted this short time lapse to YouTube today — it’s from yesterday’s sunset.
