Today I spent most of the day either under this palm tree...
...or in this water, which was crystal clear and at least 85 degrees:
I was reading a fun book called The Bee Keeper's Apprentice, which is a well-written Sherlock Holmes saga with a twist. I never would have picked it out myself, but a friend recommended it and I have really enjoyed it.
We had a few epic wildlife encounters as well. This spider was about the size of a grapefruit:
TH also spotted a pack of giant tailless rodents, one hustling about with a mango in its mouth. Not sure what they were (other than creepy).
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend!
Question: Have you read a book recently that pleasantly surprised you?
