Stopped for lunch on Murder Island. That's my trusty yellow kayak. An hour before this photo I got caught in the surf and the rocks just around the bend to the left of that white strip you can see (on the land that's attached by a narrow strip to the part of the island I'm standing on taking this photo). One of those instances where you either get out of the boat or get swamped. The rest of the group had gone around the other tip - Art came back to see if I was okay. Thankfully I'd safely 'exited' my kayak and pulled it up onto the boulders - then across more boulders to shallower, calmer water where I was able to get back into my boat (very happy for my plastic boat rather than fibreglass!). Then paddled over to this beach, where we all ended up for our lunch. It was tricky, a little nerve-wracking and a lesson learned for more awareness for (not) getting caught in surf and rocks! A chance to 'keep calm and take your time' - an experience not documented anywhere other than imprinted in my own mind.
This was the nicest, white-sand beach we saw in all the islands.
