Anecdotes

Sammy's Stories (So far)

I am sorry I haven't many tales about Xmas Island, except for the time we were at Poland Beach and I tried to be clever by diving into a giant roller. Somehow it got under and behind me and threw me over the reef. All I could think about at the time was, "here I am, 44 days to do on the Rock and I'm going to drown or be eaten by sharks, because at the time there were plenty about. No one could get out to me because the waves were so fierce and huge. Suddenly this huge roller picked me up and threw me back on shore. Although the temperature at the time was over 100F in the shade.
