Swimming at Deka Deka

I’ve been rather neglectful of this blog over the past few weeks. Firstly I had a week away in Brisbane with a defunct laptop, then I returned home to find that our much loved tabby cat had disappeared. Three weeks later we’re none the wiser as to what happened to him and exploring every option has taken a fair bit of time, not to mention coming to terms with the absence of his little furry self.

However here I am again, gearing up for the April A to Z challenge, with at least some of the posts ready to go.

Today I want to post what may be the last of my Papua New Guinea photos. This time it’s a brief glimpse of our outing to a small island off Samarai in Milne Bay. My husband used to visit Deka Deka when he was a small boy so he was particularly pleased to be able to dive into its crystal clear waters. A member of our small group went snorkelling and reported that the coral had been damaged by storms etc, but it certainly didn’t spoil our enjoyment of a brief excursion.

These photos are part of Mr Cassmob’s family heritage: the site where their house was situated when they lived on Samarai. Sadly the house is no more, nor are the others that were their neighbours. Now the new neighbours are the Council offices. There is nothing left of the BBQ or the hibiscus or……just the memories.

The site of Mr Cassmob's family's home for about eight years in the 1960s.

Our family has heard various tales about their life here, one of the more amusing being how their cat would use the crab holes in the sand for his toilet.

Wouldn’t you like this view, looking out to sea from the house and across to Logeia Island then down to the wharf in the other direction.
