Wonder what would happen if I suggested to Linda that she should make our fruit plates look like this at home. Why do I suspect the knife would be used to carve something other than the fruit?

As you can see, our travels have been restricted to the western and northern islands. That leaves the southern and eastern islands for another trip.

How can one ever tire of looking at these guys? One you’ve seen your first booby, you want to see more.

A bit of explanation about the clip below. It is 33 seconds long. Normally I heavily edit the original before posting, cutting it down, altering the audio, etc. This is raw footage from beginning to end. Enjoy.



We could see them out in front of the panga. When I shot an underwater video this is what showed up.

We took over 1100 photos between the two of us today. A number of the water shots bore a resemblance to this one.

Siesta time.

Sea turtle egg shells. They were on the beach, not back up behind in the nesting area. Could something have dug up the nest and ate the eggs?

Yellow bird.

Little remains of this US WWII wharf for unloading ships.

IMGP3923

It’s likely her ancestors saw the wharf being built.
