... child, in my dreams... A forest of coconut palms, in a field of sand, by the water... The only thing missing, was a hammock. This was my very first idea of what a holiday looked liked. 20 years later, my ideas of what a "holiday" looks like have certainly expanded but that image is still ever present. 10:44am - 2nd & only can of Diet Pepsi left in Marawila - Humidity is 110%.

At 6.30 in the morning, the area was bustling with activity and the fish came in all shapes and sizes including hammerhead sharks and giant tuna.

The children were still asleep, a late breakfast for them was being negotiated. We enjoyed fresh juice, a platter of fruit, and a basket ...
16/10 Another early start and another dull headache to start the day. Must not be drinking enough ... water, or having coffee withdrawals! We drove to Castaway for breakfast with Wayne before he headed into work for the morning. He had finished his last report at 11.30pm, distributed them all by email. Fresh juices, bacon and eggs for the girls and Wayne had his salmon scrambled eggs.. I had the home made muesli which was unusual and very filling. The fishermen ...
