When people see me, they may feel odd about me. Some may consider me as a useless lonely log (tree trunk) stuck at this shallow muddy part of Ambo – Taborio lagoon. Others may think that I shouldn’t be here.

Despite such feelings, I know that I am worth enough for birds, fish and other small sea creatures. Apart from providing shelter, shade and food to the creatures that come and live on or around me, birds also use me much like their fishing canoe during high tides. The fact is: ‘I am useful, have friends and of course, attractive!’.
