We went to Selingan. It was a beautiful, bumpy ride. The island just to the east of us was part of the Philippines, which cooperates with Malaysia on sea turtle preservation efforts.
All the turtle action happens at night--the turtles that hatched on Selingan decades ago come back there to lay their eggs.

But that's at night. During the day, there's nothing to do but hit the beach,
if the weather cooperates, which it sure did. We snorkeled all morning,
and again in the afternoon.
On the way to dinner, we stumbled upon a couple of monitor lizards getting it on.
