Monkeying Around

Monday morning spent more time at the beautiful pool here. Nice long laps and usually have it all to myself.

In the afternoon we took the boat to the jetty in KK and then met out guide Chi Chi who took us to the Klias River, about a two hour drive where we had a light snack before boarding a small boat.

A few minutes after boarding we spotted a crocodile and it wasn't long before we saw our first Proboscus monkey. Borneo is the only place on earth to see these amusing creatures with their pot bellies and floppy noses. The males have perpetual "stiffies".

We had amazing sightings of Proboscus, Silverleaf monkeys which are very rare and long tail Macaques. Our guide said it was an unusually good day. Once it was too dark for more sightings we got off the boat for a nice meal then boarded again to go in search of fireflies and were rewarded with the most amazing display of twinkling lights in the trees. It was truly a magical sight. Hundreds of fireflies!

We were happy that we had such amazing sightings and no rain. It was then time for the trip back in a very bumpy van. We were glad to finally get into our comfy bed

Next day was a lazy day around the resort swimming eating and drinking around the pool
