Kapolai and Mabul

Today we visited the island of Kapolai. Well, none of the island is above the waterline. But they’ve created a resort on stilts. We didn’t get to visit the stilt resort, but we snorkeled the reef.

It was quite good. Here are some features:

Later, we went over to Mabul. The snorkeling was not that great over there, but we did see a few fish that we had not seen elsewhere. Here’s a photo of the village next to the dock.

Finally, back at the hotel, we saw this large heron on the building across the street.

We came to learn by watching him, that he was fishing for birds, i.e., the swallows flying overhead. They must land near his perch and he snatches one and then eats it. Life can be short in this ancient ecosystem.
