After breakfast we all went ashore. I kept with David most of the time and did a good deal of photographing of a Barringtonia sp. tree. I showed the tree itself stretching out over the water, then the peculiar fruit and flowers as they are washed ashore. Then the peculiarly shaped large fruit as it floated on the water and later the small seedlings growing near the beach. Also the insides of the fruit.
David and I went up the beach and he found some other specimens of interest. Marian and Anne found a few interesting shells. It was late when we got back to the junk and everyone was rather tired as they had not slept well last night because a heavy rain forced them to go below in the middle of the night.
David wanted me to go exploring again at 4 and Ted took us out to the shore to the east. We only landed a short time on account of the tide. David found some of his parasitic ants’ nests over which he became greatly excited and insisted on my taking photographs when it was too dark. I only took one.
