This week has been calm and sunny . We hae been anchored off Kapa island where the water is deep and blue .
I'e always enjoyed the wild life films mde by Daid Attenborough . always with him wading through the jungle in shorts and sandaalls . This morning we went ashore to explore and to climb the mountain behind the illage for thie sights of hte islands .We met the illage children, two of whom Anna and Serena both aged six offerred to guid us .We left the small settlement and climbed through the jungle following the paths made by th e wils pigs . Serena climbed and orange tree with the agility of a monkey to pick us fruit . upwards we climbed for an hour missing the huge spiders nest across the path untill we reached the summit .Then I remembered that I was doing it in 'flip flops and shorts' ; a real Attenborough experience.
Tonight the people hae lit their umu's and are roasting a pig
