    ... and kept tossing us around and throwing water into my snorkel. Shou taught me how to swim properly with fins which helped a bit, especially when I saw a giant snake like fish and decided to book it back to the island about 15 minutes before them.

    I took sexy snorkel selfies (so not sexy) and played with the little hermit crabs. When they returned we shared pineapple and bananas on the beach and shared some with some ...

    ... Nicola has apparently made arrangements to go through someone's private property.

We were too tired and miserable coming down the mountain today to take a lot of pictures ...

    ... all the way home from my other brothers and sisters and various friends. My Spanish just came back from nowhere - who knows the capacity of our brains. It was just like changing a CD. The hard bit was getting on a roll in Spanish and then translating for Morgan. The swapping and changing is confusing - especially all the expressions!
