Difficult Decisions – Tao Expeditions (Day 3)

Island and boat life wasn’t all easy; Decisions had to be made throughout each day. Do I get up for sunrise or get a bit more sleep? Do I want coffee, ginger tea, or water? Should I get my book out of my bag or nap? I just dried off – do I even want to get wet and go snorkeling right now? Should I get that second helping of lunch? (Always a ‘yes.’) And most importantly, is it too early to crack a beer and will I be judged for it? (Absolutely not.)

On day three, I woke up content, but I still didn’t feel great – dehydrated, hungry, and somehow sleep deprived after some soothing monsoonal rains during the night. Through the bug net, it was getting light out and I know myself well enough to know I wasn’t about to fall back to sleep so eyes barely open, I wandered back down to the beach on Linapacan Island. It was pretty overcast from the early morning storm, but with a few breaks in the clouds, I was mistakenly hopeful for some color.

By the time I got back to camp, people were starting to move and coffee, tea, and fresh fruit was being served… Pretty much the standard early morning routine with Tao. We sat around snacking before bowling with coconuts and snorkeling back to the ship.

I think day three turned out to be my favorite day with Tao…
