So sad to be going back to England. Yesterday was a perfect day. Gentle breezes, the sea almost flat calm, the colours everywhere vibrant. I took a kayak up to Whale Cay and got almost as far as Vigilant before realising the skin on my thumbs was wearing out. We have roseate terns nesting on the island for the first time this year, I wonder whether the increase in their numbers has anything to do with the Marine Protection Area that’s been established around Whale Cay, I hope so.
