Down south

With the Coventry Hobbit diving and Cousteau-cub working in the dive centre, we were left to our own devices. Yesterday's warm wind continued to blow, but did manage to carry with it a good deal of cloud.

Urban-cub, the Silver Vixen and the Gorse Fox headed south. The lower end of the Island is a National Park, and though we had tried to visit it during our last trip, we had been defeated by the lack of paved road. No such problem this time - a road has been completed all the way to the park. The Gorse Fox would comment that he was glad of the heavy duty 4x4 as the roads are a little challenging.

It's an idyllic spot, crowned by a lighthouse, with views to the east, south and north, and embraced by the jungle and mangrove plantation

It also boasts a stunning south facing beach which was practically deserted.
