Will slept really bad due to some strange muscle cramp in his leg, as a result it meant I went and ate breakfast for the first time in a long while. We had decided last last night that we were going to take out the small rowing boat and have an explore around the coast going South.
We woke the other two up at 9 and we all talked about how the trip was going to take place. All loaded up with suncream, water and cameras we headed out. Paddling was hard and after a while we realised how hard this was going to be. We could see way in the distance the "White rock" we had been briefed on previously by the owner. Once we arrived thanks to myself and wills paddling mainly, we took a well deserved break and took a while to muster enough energy to swim out to this White rock. (200m out from shore)
Will and I headed off first and arrived at the rock exhausted due to a huge current that I didn't think was possible in a lake! Making things even more tricky was the rock was slippery and there were no hand holds to climb with since it's all weathered and smooth. After a huge effort I managed to clamber up using every bit of strength I could muster. I pulled will up and after a few minutes we jumped off this massive rock, 17-20ft!! We jumped off twice an I dived off once. My watch broke from the force, I had lost a pin!!
We swam back and tom wanted to try his luck, we warned him how difficult it was. Sure enough 10 minutes of distant shouting and cursing around the base of the rock we saw his defeated/deflated swim back.
We soon headed off and found another cliff to jump off, we all made t up this one and took some good photos. (15ft)
Once we arrived back we all realised how burnt we all were. I luckily kept my t shirt on for the majority of time in the boat, but Will who's fair skinned and Ginger was like a lobster. Very sore indeed!
We had a big BBQ at mayoka village and then started playing "old maid" with a forfeit for the looser. Fortunatly I avoided this since they were getting worse due to the fact more and more people were arriving. Licking the menu blackboard in clear view of EVERYONE which Will did reluctantly, 10 press ups infront of the bar tom managed 8!! Then tom also lost again and had to "dirty dance" with a huge pillar infront of the whole restaurant which was made worse by the song that came on at the time, a very slow track, ankle dancing came into play....
We decided to head into town again, bit of a dead night, so headed up within the hour..
