And just down there is the dining room and lounge area.
They sent up a complimentary plate of delicious, fresh, colourful fruits (and a flower) - of course I had to polish off the beautiful mango before it got to Peter with his allergy!
Then we went down to the lounge to mull through the bookshelf - people read a lot in these resorts, and a kind of book exchange has developed naturally. (Unfortunately almost all of them were in German.)
Maybe because of the approaching monsoon, the water was full of jellies - although most of them seemed to be tentacle-less and dying. We saw a couple of massive ones one the beach, about a metre across, but nothing like that in the water.
The coral was as beautiful as ever, with delightful little surprises that pop out here and there.
Peter made some new friends - a couple of little eels that he hadn't seen before.
In the evening they put tablecloths and candles on the tables under the trees on the beach.
We had a lovely meal of prawns and noodles served in a clay pot. And then we went up to our big bed in the trees to read and relax.
oh... there was the other little thing...
When we got up there I was a little startled to come face-to-face with a large, brown rat! He was kinda cute-looking, round-faced - not one of those disgusting evil-looking rats! He had come for the treats we had brought from the market on the mainland (and left unwrapped!) Well that was fine, except he didn't want to leave, and we wanted to go to bed. We spent a little time chasing him around under the bed, behind the wardrobe, behind the curtains ... and finally out the door!
