Half Way - Mystery Island

I haven't been blogging, but Kevin has. Today we are halfway through the cruise.

I wasn’t all that keen on visiting Mystery Island. It is an uninhabited coral islet, with a bit of vegetation and a surrounding barrier reef. The locals from the neighbouring island set up stalls selling plastic grass skirts, shell and coconut jewellery and cheap garish sarongs.

We went ashore and stayed for about an hour. That was enough.

The most interesting thing I saw was a monstrous spider web, obviously constructed over many weeks or months.

I liked the twisted pandanus roots too.
