21/09/13 An Ode to Cap Ternay

Twelve weeks with GVI has been such fun,
Fond memories on this rock, under the sun.
I`ll miss my morning walk out to the boat,

Alas, in paradise you may need a coat.

The staff all muck in, to keep camp spic and span –

Use voodoo magic to fix the green van.

The foods always good, it`s nutritious and filling,

Beans and pasta taste nice if you show willing.

The highlight of each week is on Thursday nights,

Be assured by 10:30, you`ll see some sights..!!

P V snorkel once a week, it`s a blast if you`re down,

You`ll feel rewarded and happy, but try not to drown..!!

 Plankton pull is so hard and extremely gruesome,

To beat those old times you`ll sure need a two-some.

Exams all complete, studies all done, it`s time to leave the bay-

Awesome coral and pretty fish you`ll start to survey.

The age old battle grows deeper and stronger,

Fish do look cool but coral lasts longer..!!

In 1998 we saw the reef sadly perish,

Diving today beholds a sight one should cherish.

So if just like me you`re looking for fun,

Mahe is the answer, GVI number one..!!
