On our first weekend home on the island we got straight back into adventuring and took a trip to a teeny tiny island, Pulau Yefmat, near Batang Pele, for some fishing, and hopefully (if we caught a fish) some lunch.
When we arrived on the island we saw that there was a makeshift cabin and 2 men staying there, a security post watching the surrounding waters for uninvited fishermen. They welcomed us and we spent the morning walking on the beach, collecting trash, making art, fishing and cooking up quite a feast.
As is typical in these parts, the island was all white sand and turquoise waters.
And when the boys came back bearing fish, we cooked up! We didn't have a grill for our fish so we made one from coconut fronds! This is our island life...
