Shades of holidays in North Wales - Sheltering from the rain at Ile Coin

Date                 Friday 22 April 2016 to Saturday 23 April 2016

 

But at least the rain was warm and Friday was fine enough to get ashore onto Ile Coin and to snorkel some of the shore reef during which we had three separate sightings of black tip reef sharks which seemed much more curious than those that we encountered in the Maldives.  We must remember to take the camera on all our underwater jaunts.

Ashore, the remains of the small settlement are rapidly being consumed by the forest

 

Wildlife ashore or a creature from another world?
