What I'm doing on vacation

It's just after Noon, James is out running and I'm all alone in our room at Cypress Moon B&B in Kitty Hawk.  The air conditioning is so cold I'm wearing long sleaves with a down comforter over my lap as I sit on my Tempurpedic bed with  2 pillows behind my back.  On the night stand next to me is a piece of crusty bread, some Nordic Grumpy Goat cheese and a glass of wine.  Divine!  Edit:  James informed me later there was a sign saying "no eating in bed".  Oops.  I'm glad I didn't spill anything.  Sorry, Linda and Greg.  I usually behave better (not).
Maybe I should be out doing something, at least sitting on the beach reading a book, but right now this is all I want to do.  We haven't been able to sleep late yet so I figured sitting in bed in the afternoon is the next best thing, maybe even better.  This morning we got up at 6:30 to take a Wild Horse Adventure Tour.  The tour guide was quite the entertainer and didn't seem to ever get tired of talking.  We gave him a tip even though I bit all my nails off on the jeep ride back on the beach.  It was a good way to spend the morning, see the sights and learn about the island.  Adam seems very comfortable in his role as a guide and it was fun seeing him in an environment that's all his own and I know nothing about. 

If I get really energetic I may roll out of bed and walk a whole 30 yards down to the pier and watch the sailboats go by. This is the view out my bedroom window.
The B&B has bikes and kayaks we can use but a nap sounds best right now.
