We kayaked and snorkeled on our last day at the resort. We saw some interesting sea life including a scorpionfish and manta ray.  It's great to see things on a shallow reef that you would normally just see when diving.  We also finally found the time at this stop for Thomas to teach us pinochle.  

On our last night, we went down to the beach to enjoy the sunset.  One of the hotel staff emerged on the beach with water buffalo on a rope leash.  He was taking it on a daily run on the beach – quite a sight.  Turns out Berthi the Buffalo swam ashore after an overloaded freighter bound for the buffalo market sunk off Angel Island a few years ago.  He was the only one to make it to shore, so the staff adopted him.  They ship in grass each day for him to eat and give him runs around the island.  He was really happy – like Senta when she's out on a walk.  It was pretty funny to watch.
