Had a lazy day today. Sat and chatted to August and Daiva, our hosts. August had lots to show us and tell us about the island. He pointed out all good beaches and places of interest. Told us about the history of the island, both ancient and modern. Sorry we've only got a couple of days on this side of the island. There seems lots to do and see. Ah, well, we'll just have to come back another time.
Spent a relaxing day at the beach. Black sand, doesn't look very pleasant, but behaves exactly like yellow sand; gets stuck all over you!
Went to look at an historical site, which was " a place of refuge". It appears you could go there to hide out if you were in trouble and lie low until the heat died down. You had to be cleansed by the priests before you were let back into society.
Plan to do more of the same tomorrow, a beach, a bit of snorkeling and a mooch around town.
