5: Feed the fish left over pancakes off the stern of the boat. Specifically trying to get the giant wrass to come up to the surface so we can see his huge lips.
4: (contributed by Jake) Have pretend pirate battles by drawing different kinds of pirate ships on different pieces of paper and place them all over our map table to show what country they represent. Then battle it out.
3: Find a tide pool with tiny fish and sit really still to see if they'll come up and nibble on our bodies.
2: Go hunting on shore for coconut crabs and/or land crabs (usually done after dark). Find areas of shredded coconuts and look for the giant holes to indicate crabs. We haven't actually seen any coconut crabs yet, so far this is a hunting game, not a catching game.
And the number one way to entertain ourselves when found with too much free time...
Have Jake and I chum the waters off the back of the boat for sharks with a freshly caught grouper (well, half a grouper - some of the sharks got him early) and then watch Andy stick his camera in the feeding frenzy to take pictures.
So the next time you get bored, think of us... :).
