Up nice and early to go and see an Indian Ocean sunrise. Very nice in the misty beach with the fishermen Silhouetted along the shoreline.



Later we did a really good boat trip out on the St. Lucia estuary with our informative guide. Besides all the crocs and hippos, including a 2 day old one we also saw a mind boggling array of birds. African spoon-bills, sacred ibis, wooly necked storks, gray heron, goliath heron, little egret, Egyptian geese, spur winged geese, fish eagle, blacksmith plover, wattled plover, pied avocet, black winged stilt, giant kingfisher, pied kingfisher, brown headed kingfisher and white fronted plover.



Later that afternoon we decided to do a hike again, a bit of a disaster yet again, especially as some geezer on a horse kept coming over and staying don't go there or watch out for the leopard, he's been seen in the area recently!



We did however see a warthog close up and looking curiously at us and some African green parrots.



As we were getting ready to go out that night that night a bush baby dropped out of the tree onto our neighbours car, we left them some bananas, but they didn't take the bait and come back.




Went to St. Pizza restaurant that evening after scouting every restaurant in town to see which had the best deal on tiger prawns.



A dodgy name, but it turned out to have a real bonus as they had Stella and Hoegaarden on draught! The tiger prawns were priced at $22 for a kg, they must have seen us coming though because as soon as we had the beers in our hands they told us how they were out of tiger prawns after telling us what a great deal it was earlier that evening!



We did however get a nice combo plate of queen, king and langos (like crawfish) prawns all cooked in a yummy garlic butter.
