Friendly encounter with Elephant

Was this young elephant (about five years) curious about the board or just hoping I had some bananas for him? Well I'm not totally sure but it was a heck of a lot of fun even though the board required quite a bit of repair work after returning from the trip. I paddled a blow up we had as a spare for the remainder of the time in these waters.

 

The fifth photo down is the last one I managed to take before he whacked me on the side of the head knocking me off the board. I took the rest of the shots from the water except for the last shot which was the parting shot as I paddled away to think about fixing the board.
