... 8211; he also lives on this small island when he is not working!)

  • spicy bruschetta/tomato appetisers (unassumingly called ‘toasts’ by the cook!)
    • Steve and the boys went snorkeling in the first bay, with Malagasy fish eagles calling in the background (smaller and brown compared with the more familiar African fish eagle)
