    ... just 30 minutes. It was as enjoyable as ever and we then walked a mile or so up the beach to dry off. The 'Fun & Joy Bar & Restaurant' looked a nice place by the river to enjoy a Lion Beer on our return. Mr Kumara delivered an excellent meal that evening, we had fish, salad, soup and rice, followed by a type of yogurt. It was a nice end to the day, the food could not be faulted and it was obviously cooked by a Chef of some quality and ...

The beast gave the impression he was thinking, 'how agile am I, how beautiful am I, aren't I the most amazing thing you have ever seen in the wild'? If he was thinking that, then he had just read our minds. We stayed, we watched, we gasped, we took our photos. There are plenty, when I download them I will post the on this blog.

    ... down the beach. They had a long net out and were bringing it in. We waded across the creek up to our waist, with ipad, phones and my D7000, to watch the final process of the net being brought ashore and the catch sorted. Then the massive outrigger canoe being manhandled up the beach on the shoulders of the men, aided by rolling tubes.

    ... tasted. Then lunch is a salad sandwich. We go to the market and buy the seafood we are going to eat that night. It's all delicious. Mark has been surfing every morning since he got the board hire sorted out. The swell has been a bit rough, so the water around the reef doesn't have good visibility for snorkelling at the moment. But we both need to have a dip in the lagoon a couple of times a day to cool off, as it is pretty hot and humid during the ...
