We all explored the beach a bit today.

The tide is about about half way between high and low.
When it's high it come all the way up to the rocks we're sitting on, when it's low the other rocks aren't surrounded by water anymore.

There's this little inlet of water.

With Sebastiaan and Lucky Duck I took a walk along the beach.

The obligatory picture-perfect palm tree:

Here it got too deep for us to go on. These little walls are there so the sand isn't all swept away by the water.

Normal coconuts swim in the water and were spred over the world that way. The endemic coco d'mer doesn't usually swim, so only very rarely were they found on the beaches of India or Maledives and the kings or emperors  had laws in place that those had to be brought to them or payed very well for such finds.

The water was very clear with little seagrass.
