Went for a short jungle trek to Rimba Resort at d north of island. Secluded n very clear waters. Met a couple of local dogs on d beach, big muscular Bull Terrier mixed. Tried 2 put on a brave front n scare dem away but dey were friendly enuf n werent even bothered bout our presence. Hmmm, must work on my ‘Mean n Angry’ routine a bit more.

Brought along our tents 2 keep d mozzies away just in case v werent allowed inside d Aframes. Was a cool experience sleeping under d stars n listening 2 d waves breaking on d shore. Was only a basic fair weather tent, hence began 2 leak after a prolonged downpour. V put on our best behavior n resort did allow us in d chalets provided v slept in our crates.

‘Very creative jumps n pause table’

Beach agility
Russell’s owners were truly innovative n made simple jumps out of available n natural materials eg. coconuts, sticks n floats. Looked good n were a delight 2 use. Russell n I got a refresher course in basic agility while on holiday.

Hopped into d boat n onto a secluded scenic island. Beautiful soft white sand n u cld even spot some fishes in d calm sea. Russell went snorkeling with his owners whilst I went up 2 a honeymooning couple 2 c if dey wld play frisbee with me. Dey tried but deir throwing skills were below par so I didn’t bother dem again.

Crabbing
At nite ven d moon is shining, u cld get in2 a really neat activity called crab hunting. Dese tiny shelled creatures wld pop out of d sand as if 2 say hi n ven u approach dey wld disappear just as quickly. Tried to gv chase but deir funny sideways scurrying style always sent me going in d wrong direction … hv yet 2 figure dis 1out n is on my list of things to work on.

Coconut plucking
Our owners got a tad over ambitious n decided dat mayb v cld also partake in d local island past time of plucking coconuts. Easier said den done, coz 1st u've 2 climb up d blooming tree which was a tall order. D local monkeys werent around so v cldnt sneak away. Hv 2 agree with Russell's snide comment, 'Why climb ven u cn swim?'

Chilling out
After all dat, v were dead tired n agreeably sat down, relaxed n spared time 2 take in d scenery n clean air. Russell n I even allowed ourselves 2 b covered with sand 4 some well deserved beach therapy. Not my idea of fun coz u cant scratch or lick urself at all during d sand bake.
