    The beginning of a tour into the lagoon at around 7:00am. If you go on this tour, it costs about 200 pesos. Make sure you bring a warm jacket because it gets quite cold on the water (I wore my heavy fleece jacket – I really needed it this morning.

    A small island. It’s tough to see, but those white dots in the distance are birds. I wanted a closer shot, but the light wasn’t enough for my camera.

    On the far right, just past the Grand Bay hotel is a harbour, where all sorts of boats (mostly large yachts) are moored.
