Pom Pom Island Day 1 of 3

We woke up without an alarm this morning, it was fantastic!  Jumped on the boat and shot over to the island nice and early.  Then spent most of the day relaxing on the beach, and spent a couple hours snorkeling.  The Olympus is still scaring me, today it wouldn’t turn on without a lot of work.  I can’t seem to keep the water out of the battery compartment, and it doesn’t seem to have any sand in it.  I’m hoping tomorrow after getting all the pictures off of it to take it snorkling, in hopes it will either explode or give me some pictures.

Pom Pom Island is great so far, the room is HUGE I think it’s bigger than my living room, kitchen and dining room combined.  Along with a nice sized porch, and a huge door that opens the room up right to the ocean.  The beach is has quite a few huge shells, and a nice shallow reef a couple hundred feet out.  It’s not the best one I’ve seen, but there’s a ton of little fish and other critters.  Also a lot of large shell fish that could easily take my hand off!

The trip is going far too quickly, I need more time off! Oh and I saw the first American in the jungle the other day, can’t remember if I’ve mentioned that.  We seem to be quite rare here.
