At night in Labun Island, you can get a whole new cast of characters under the sea. On the first night one of the fishermen got a squid. When he caught it, we put it on the floor and we had a look at it. Andrew explained that it was a green eyed squid and that it was a pretty common catch there. Afterwards everyone except me had fresh sashimi… guess where it came from. But don’t worry, the squid are very common so we didn’t cause an endangered animal to be killed.
The following day a lady caught a turtle. Everyone got a few pictures of it but Daisy the dog wasn’t happy and kept barking at it. Later it got released into the mini- aquarium.
In the afternoon we went kayaking. You basically have a double oar and you push the water away from you with your oar to push the kayak forward. I got a bit stuck in the rock and was stranded. Luckily Andrew pushed my kayak forward with his leg so I could continue. It was a thrilling experience.
Have you ever been kayaking? Have you ever caught anything interesting when fishing?
