What a spot to anchor!
In the middle of the lake was a large islandhabitat of our prey,
the dangerous crocodiles, and within the island was another little lagoon
connected to the main lake by a narrow tree-lined arm of water. Islands
with lakes and lakes within islandstypical of the vast Amazon
fresh water sea. We anchored in the main lake. The boatswain member
of the crew dived in the crystal water. I thought that was a great idea
and I dived in toowhat a pleasant sensation as I swam around,
completely carefree. No one else jumped in; later I discovered that
they were afraid, not of the crocodiles (that mostly stay near the shore),
but of the piranhas that travel in schools. The boatswain had jumped
in to check the anchor and was watching around him very carefully. Anyway,
I enjoyed the swim; but, the next day when I saw what piranhas can do,
I decided not to take another swim.
