We were heading south coming from the northern-most tip of Borneo towards our final destination, Kota Kinabalu. In a bay within sight of the cloud-shrouded peak of Mt Kinabalu we were treated to a spectacular sunset. And two fishermen joined us in the bay as they rowed out towards the ocean in their tiny canoe. Our compact digital camera decided to give up the ghost after 3 years of salt spray and rough rides in the dingy. It took a fingernail and a bit of force to pry open the automatic lens cover and capture this memory. We putted the dingy quietly back to Australis in awe at the spectacular end to our private "sundowners" on a deserted beach in Borneo.
