Today we certainly got our money’s worth. It just happened to be the Waisai Day! We were supposed to go and look at birds of paradise in the jungle clad hills above Sapokreng village but something was wrong – Too wet? Too dry? Not sure. So we missed out on the birds and didn’t leave until 7am, in two speedy powerboats.
I had forgotten the four giant clams in a cluster a few hundred metres down the beach. Bigger than any I have seen anywhere, I am sure. Glorious!
|Each clam well over one metre|
There were things of beauty everywhere, big and small.
But eventually…I had to come out of the water and get back into the boat.
Captain Saka then took us to a fabulous snorkelling spot between Kri and Mansuar Islansds, where we all hopped out of the boat and swam along the reef wall with the current until he felt the need to come and pick us us.
Now I am so tired I can barely speak, or type, and my computer is about to lose its charge. It has been a bit overcast so we don’t have much power so this might all f-a-d-e away…
