Thursday 16 February 2012: Too much monkey business.
Hi Folks. Blog for yesterday was blocked for some reason.
We went on the island hopping boat trip. Best £5 spent so far. A troop of monkeys were guarding the passage to a freshwater lake on the 1st island. Lots of photo opportunities, but they can be quite aggressive, and will leap up and grab anything they consider might be edible, hence the packet of biscuits they shared amongst themselves.
Next stop was to see Sea Eagles, Brahminy Kites and other raptors "fishing". Very spectacular although a wee bit contrived as each departing boat dumped a few scraps so the next load of tourists were guaranteed a show.
Final island was for swimming. Crystal clear warm waters and a soft sand beach. Heaven.
