... float past us occasionally which was a shame. Also the sand on the beach was gorgeous fine white sand, it just needed a clean! Whilst we were sunbathing a couple of wild boars wandered past us, as you do! We had our fail safe lunch of crisps and immitation jammy dodgers and then carried on relaxing with our books. Before we knew it, it was time to head back to mainland. Just before boarding the speedboat I nipped to the toilet. I'm not entirely sure ...
