Everyone seemed to be getting on a boat, so I decided to join them, wandering across the beach, book still stuck under my nose. It wasn't usually the sort of thing I would do, but everyone here seemed extremely interesting. I was keen to get to know them.
I sat in the corner by myself, reading. Ooh, socialite, me.
