The entire trip we had been plagued by the sound of chickens. I thought those F'ing things started at sunrise but noooo, they like to get going around 3 a.m. We've had a bunch of them living near our bungalow and they've been keeping me up every night. I don't know if it's the Mansion House Vodka hangover but those damn chickens have finally broken me. I guess they don't bother Kat too much since she's used to sleeping through Arnie's snoring.

Everyone was feeling rough but we managed to get our act together and meet at the dive shop. I take my usual mid afternoon nap in the hammocks outside waiting for our dive to start. Jason had mask squeeze from the day before and his eyes look like a cross between Kieth Richards and a zombie. He was scaring small children with his bloody eyes, poor guy. No more diving for Jason. The dive site was called Halik, a very tough and technical dive due to the current. It was well worth it as we saw lots of marine life; large lion fish, lobsters, eels, a large school of HUGE bump fish, and several sea turtles. The turtles were so close that Kat got to pet one and Herman actually kissed another.

Post dive more hammock time. Sweet. After more nap time we all meet at the Beach House for another beach side BBQ of fresh seafood. Jason was kind enough to wear his sunglasses through dinner so as not to ruin our appetites. Some smart kittens who hung out under our table got some nice prawn heads to snack on.
After dinner Alison went to bed and Jason joined Kat and I in our bungalow to watch a DVD of "The Assassination of Jesse James" or as I like to call it "The 2 Hours and 40 Minutes I'll Never Get Back".

Time for bed and the chickens are already planning my demise.
