Tomohon and Bunaken

To Bunaken Island

I had a few shots left in the camera from my trip to Lake Tondano, just below Tomohon. There was very little to see on the side of the lake that I rode past. Just lots of weed.

After five days in Tomohon, I grabbed a shared taxi to Manado and the next day caught the boat to Bunaken Island. The next morning I went for a walk along the track and found some good birds, but nothing spectacular.
