The whole village came over to the spit, using various means of transport.
The locals took a few of the cruisers spear fishing while some other men hunted coconut crab and fished with nets. They came back with several coconut crab, a lobster and several mullet. They wrapped the fish up in leaves and poured fresh coconut milk inside, placed it in a fire pit and covered it and the crabs with coconut palms and sand.
The women had other food duties and had come with curries, coconut bread, etc. Some of the cruisers prepared dishes to contribute to the picnic.
The children played ball on the spit and some were treated to a ride in a kayak.
