Wednesday 24th February

Activity for today was snorkeling - we were picked up from the hotel and headed down to the harbour, past numerous shops that had aquariums full of seahorses outside (presumably for eating).

The boat was bigger and the sea less choppy than our last excursion so it was a considerably more comfortable trip out to the nearby islands for "Vietnam's best snorkeling". The snorkeling was indeed excellent, visibility of about 15m and loads of coral, colourful fishes and assorted marine lifeforms as yet unidentified. We really must get better at this fish identification thing.

We had two stops for getting wet at which we spent a little too much time in the water - with only six people on the boat it was a pretty relaxed schedule.

Tried lobster for dinner - tasted very good but really not sure that the hassle is worth it; particularly when you don't have any cracker things to get the shell off. They're damned spikey on the fingers.

As we walked back to the hotel we saw da Vinci himself at work...
