So, as you may have gathered from the odd connectivity moment, we were in Borneo last week, on a scuba diving holiday on Mabul Island, and the whole thing was utterly fabulous.
Our hotel was built on stilts, jutting out into the ocean and is connected by a walkway over the ocean to the little island, so going for a run every day was – yes, indeed – interesting. (The #100daysofrunning challenge, remember…)
Mainly I ran along the wooden runway connecting our hotel to the island, and then ran round and round and round the island (for ’tis a very teensy tiny darling little island).
And one evening, as I ran along the walkway, I stopped to gaze down at the ocean (as one does) and see what I spied…a ginormous banded sea krait:
Sure knocks the stray dogs of Delhi into a cocked hat, I can tell you.
But despite its fearsome appearance and its seriously toxic bite (Google it, if you don’t believe me) these sea snakes are not aggressive. Hmm, yes, whatever.
