April 1st - April 2nd:
After the months of baking, dry heat, the rains have finally come. After a few days of witnessing fantastic lightning. A storm finally hit porcupine island. Fortunatly my Hennessy Hammock held up fantastically (Other Hammock brands are available). The change of temperature and humidity were a welcome change.
The following morning as I was walking down to the shore for lunch. The fish trap started rattling around and making an almighty noise. After getting closer it turns out we had accidentaly caught a water monitor. So the following 20 minutes I spent inside a fishing trap trying to help a very angry water monitor. Fortunatly by wrapping the bugger in a T-Shirt I was able to capture him and set him free with no ill effect.
