We’ve been in Munda for a little while now and it’s a great base for exploring the area a bit more. Last week we zigzagged through the reefs and headed over to the Vona Vona Lagoon where we anchored next to Lola Island, home to Zipola Habu, a friendly resort ran by Joe and Lisa for the last thirty years or so. It was a great place to do some snorkelling, go for a long bush walk and make an excursion to nearby spooky “skull island”. On Sunday, Lisa’s grandchildren came over and one of the girls had a birthday party. Our boys joined in with the celebrations (who would say no to some chocolate cake?). The swing in front of the bar, off the jetty, was the perfect playground even though it was heaving with black-tip reef sharks. These friendly sharks are curious but shy too and the kids loved jumping in between them. If somebody would have told me three years ago I would let me kids swim amongst sharks, I would have never believed it. How life has changed.
