Amazing to think the girl is all that way out with three metres below her.

Treasure and mangroves.

How these trees manage in salt water is such a mystery.

The parched sand still has plants and flowers.

We saw so many rays, the youngsters were a golden colour with blue dots and tails but were too skittish to picture. The adults didn’t mind posing for a few minutes before they too shot off.

This hermit crab was too shy to come out on Bear’s hand but scuttled off the rock.

We think his shell may be a little too big for him – bit of a struggle.

After exploring the far end of the beach it was time to head home for a game. I lost five nil at backgammon but after a straight of sevens wins I needed a change. Cheeky monkey. I lost badly at Mexican Train but we ended up evens at tri-ominoes.
