Rig heavy, reef early, and pray often; for God does not assure us an easy passage, but He does promise a safe anchorage...

Tom and Lilly Service
During April and May of this year we spent 4 weeks exploring some 350 miles of tropical rivers in Eastern Venezuela's Rio Orinoco Delta. This region is where the world's eighth largest river divides up into several smaller rivers, like the fingers on a hand, and spreads out on its way to the sea. Most of you will not have waded through the preceding three-part blog on the RIO ORINOCO DELTA PILOT - and we certainly cannot blame you, as it was drafted principally for the sailors interested in taking a boat to the Delta. However, we sent frequent SITREPS back to our family and friends in the form of remote blog posts via HAM Radio email as we cruised the region, and you may find Part 3 of 3 of the Delta Pilot - WINLINK DAILY SITREPS, much more interesting for casual reading. The Delta covers almost 50,000 square miles of tropical rain forest, jungle, and savannah sparsely populated by the Waro Amerindian tribe. Six feet (2 meters) of tide flow across this low lying area twice a day, creating one of the most hydro-dynamic places on earth. The bird life in the Delta is among the most diverse and populace as anywhere in the world. We enjoyed our time there immensely, and hope that you enjoy our pictures posted in the picture gallery. To view them, simply click on the PHOTO GALLERY link (just to the upper right of this text), and follow the logic tree to the Rio Orinoco Delta thusly: Main / Ports of Call / South America / Venezuela / Rio Orinoco Delta Cruise Pictures. See you there!

Tiger Lilly's Photos - Main
Approximately 100 Asian elephants live in and around the Trincomalee Landfill in northeast Sri Lanka. These huge creatures eat plastic strewn trash and garbage because they have been driven back from their natural habitat by the encroachment of farms.
