|One very hot komodo dragon hiding in the smallest shade.|
Not frisky today at all.
|Approaching the absolutely stunning Komodo Island|
and some of the 162 islands.
|This it the food that sustains the dragons.|
They are part of the animal kingdom here.
Nothing is brought to the island for Komodo's. Self sufficient.
|Well we did not want to buy Komodos so guess what...|
another proposition...pearls...small ones tiny ones and great big ones too.
They apparently come from this area.
|This was a classic a father and son team on a hand made boat|
with a small polystyrene outboard.
|And yes they had dragons to sell too. Very small an absolute classic...|
|Most of the area around Komodo Islands was rather turbulent.|
Very large areas of currents willies the size of 2-10 m.
This required total attention skill strong hands at times and a lot of time.
|This one also a classic.I was too tired to take a photo at this anchorage and|
this little boys was maybe just old enough to walk got into a boat and paddled
all the way just to see Mister..oh he could not speak yet..worth a picture
