An Intrepid Explorer

A visitor all of four feet and two inches high has arrived with his parents to explore the wonders of this island. Yesterday he made a visit to an inland beach far from the coast!

The intricacies of the river being explained to him.

There is no better experience than solitary exploration.

It takes courage to stand on the edge and look down
into the depths of the river.

Leading the nervous along a new route!
