Batam Day 2: Lounging by the Pool

Day 2 of our resort island getaway was a decadent one, to say the least. We didn’t leave Harris Waterfront Resort at all, choosing instead to head to the cafe for lunch, play a few rounds of table tennis, before seeking the pool and lazing there till the sun set. It would have driven me mad if I hadn’t already planned for it – I’ve never been very good at wasting time on vacation.

Since we were more or less spending the day by the pool, it made sense that my swimsuit was my outfit of the day. Why bring an extra set of clothes when it’s only going to get chlorinated water on it?

The island was connected by a cute little bridge. Given the non-peak period, we had all the space for ourselves. Lucky!
