SULAWESI, BUNAKEN - BIG HIKE, MORAY EEL, CLOWN FISH - 16 JULY 2017


Not the best sleep as the locals pounded out the music to well after midnight. :)

We decided on an early walk to the next village. We were told it was a 20 minute walk. Well, we got carried away and after the village which was very rural with a beautiful and imposing church we kept going and followed a bricked road that turned into a dirt track that turned into a muddy slippery goat track (there were goats) that turned into numerous goat tracks that eventually crisscrossed the island until we ended up at the far end of the island at the other village. It took nearly 3 hours. We were hot, sweaty, muddy and thirsty. I loved it and Jacinta well, I decided not to ask.










Back at the resort for breakfast, rest, lunch and a snorkel off the beach. The snorkel was shallow and there were lots of small colourful fish. The highlights were the brightly coloured clown fish and a moray eel. The eel was such a cool animal to find and watch. It bobbed its head in and out of a hole in the coral.








Back at the hotel, we organize boat transport to Manado and had dinner.
