For a moment I accepted, albeit very sadly, that my beautiful necklace from my favourite place on earth had finished its journey with me, but I wasn’t ready to give up. I jumped back in the water to search but the bottom was impossible to see while swimming.
One last attempt: I asked reception for goggles, but they had none. My lovely friend at reception, however, had his own. I searched and searched, almost giving up when I spotted a black cord in the water! After dodging a fish I emerged from the water, having completed my third skinny dip of the morning, necklace in hand.
Sometimes you’ve gotta put up a little fight before you give up hope. Thanks universe!
