... obviously invaded their territory, they were letting us know it. As a result, any ideas of a relaxing swim from the back of the boat were extinguished. It didn't seem wise to go jumping into shark infested waters. With that, all there was to do was await customs to clear us in and take in the view, before inflating the dinghy and heading for lunch on Home Island, a three mile dash across the very choppy lagoon, dodging coral heads the whole way.
Home Island - definitely one ...

... penguins. Super cool! And we got to see some ostriches that ran right by our vehicle! Someone mentioned they're the fastest living animal in Africa behind the cheetah.
