Up early ish to get our boat. All aboard! Sailed over to an island I can't remember the name of and docked up to have an explore. Wandered round n checked out some crabs climbing over some rocks. 2 of them had a little crab fight which was entertaining. Nice little bay to have a splash in.

Then hopped back on the boat ready for lunch. Had fish but it was 5 little fellas with heads n tails n all. Sposed to just eat em whole. Yuck. I cut off their heads n tails. Then got an ice cream before setting off sail again to the blue lagoon. This was a beautiful spot of bright blue water and great snorkelling.

Spent some time jumping off the top deck of the boat and bombing everyone nearby. Once the aerial acrobatics had been sufficiently satisfied, we had a good swim n snorkel around. A little disappointed as after much exploring we didn't find the cave that we thought was supposed to be there though (which I later discovered is actually by the island of Vis, not anywhere particularly near where we were. Oops)

But it was still some pretty awesome snorkelling. We went quite far away from the boat in search of the cave (which obviously wasnt actually there) and came across what seemed like the edge of the world for a moment! The nice coral bit suddenly stopped and gave way to a huge dark area stretching all along, a little creepy but turns out it was in fact just some very dark seaweed growing in a kind of seaweed dense forest. Not so many fish over there so headed back to continue exploring the livelier part.

Chased a few fish. You know they are so close that it really seems like you could just reach out and catch one but they are so crafty and just dart off at the last minute. Nevertheless, I kept trying. Also found out that if I put my foot down and scuffed up a bit of the algae stuff on the sea bed it created a little cloud of apparently tasty fish food, and loads of fish would suddenly appear swimming round by my foot. Another new game!

Then once adequately pruned up from the sea, we sailed back to dock in Split and went back to our hostel to shower n food. Simon n Nick then had a cream fight which was a bit gay and ended up pretty messy.

After going to sleep we were then woken up by a ridiculous thunderstorm that started around 2am. I have never heard thunder so loud!!! Plenty of lightening as well and sounded like it was pissing with rain (very pleased for our hostel room n not tent!!) Woke up again at 5:30 and it was still going! Pretty impressive and even after we woke up properly at 7:30 there was still some rumblings.
