Dana smiled as she changed into something far more relaxing, a yellow bikini and a sarong. At first, she was cautious about coming to a pleasure planet, but after losing a year she had decided she needed to relax and let her hair down for once.

Picking up a cocktail that her butler had prepared, she stepped out of the living space right onto her own private section of beach, the waves were gently washing ashore and the sand was warm but not too hot under her feet, a gentle but refreshing breeze blew her hair.

Closing her eyes, she gently took a sip of her cocktail, the gentle warm sun beaming on her face. This is what she missed, moments like this after all life aboard a ship had its disadvantages and as much as you could use a holodeck, it was never a substitute for the real thing.

Allowing herself a brief moment to just immerse herself, she slowly opened her eyes, perhaps tonight she would visit the casino and then for tomorrow she could hopefully, possibly invite some of the crew over, this was going to be her opportunity to get to know people, that way she could settle in to her new posting and try and actually build some real friendships.

Looking across from her bungalow she could see the masses on the public beach, perhaps this would be a good time to take a walk, mingle and see who was about, after all, she didn't come to this planet to be on her own. Gulping down her cocktail, she headed to the edge of the ocean and gently dipped in her toes, the water wasn't cold, it was warm and, well perfect, she smiled as she turned and headed towards the crowd.
