lasting for only a short time; transitory; short-lived: ephemeral pleasure.
Yesterday I posted about how SU and I went boogie/body boarding. We’d body boarded before with our own low-cost little boards and then we used our friends better boards and we were hooked. We purchased two new boards for ourselves for Christmas but I was sick with Dengue over the holidays and beyond and then in early February we both had the flu. Setting aside a day that wasn’t a weekend day (when we try to leave the beaches for the working folks) took a back burner to other “stuff” that we needed to do.
We finally just said “Let’s go!” and off we went after lunch to our favourite local beach to “catch some waves”. Or in our case the whitewater that is a result of the waves. The rides we caught lasted only a short time but brought us ephemeral pleasure…in the campo.
