And talking of Bear Grylls – well his Island Survival programme really – it’s completely true about the amount of rubbish thrown up on the beach with each tide. Even here, in the shelter of other islands and with little to no passing boat traffic we find at least one plastic bottle each morning. Yesterday we had also three large chunks of polystyrene, and today a large piece of painted timber to add to the long length of mooring rope and other debris found so far. On the plus side, I’m salvaging lots of driftwood for a romantic bonfire under the stars on Valentines night. Ahhh!!!
And I’ve broken out in spots! At my age!! No doubt it’s to do with the change of diet. And talking of that, check out the breakfast pic above! Papaya from the garden, water melon, banana and pineapple from the market. Talk about spoilt!
Oh, and just as I was writing this, a P & O cruise ship made its way between us and the other islands on its way to The Port of Refuge at Neiafu. Naturally Jas got out the binoculars and even Brian, the resort cat, stirred himself to watch! Well, that’s todays activity ticked off!
