We moored our boat in an inlet and camped overnight on the shores of this new land. The sunrise revealed the sheer beauty of our newly discovered isle. Golden sandy beaches, crystal clear lakes and waterfalls cascading from the cliffs above.
However, most striking is surely the fauna that surrounds us, huge colourful plants and flowers the likes of which I don’t think anybody (except maybe Aulani) has ever seen been. The was a huge mushroom-shaped rainbow coloured plant that must have been over 2 metres tall and some rather strange looking giant dandelion type flowers which, as strange as it sounds to say, looked as if they had cat-like faces in the middle of them! Another tall pod like plant had what seemed to be eyes peering through the flowers...
This really is a most curious land indeed! Tomorrow we are going to explore deeper inland towards the heart of the island.
