He grows tired of seeing and not doing. ” Not many days after this, we were creeping through the Torres Strait between Australia and New Guinea. The sea boiled furiously where the waves dashed against hidden coral. “What an awful stretch of water,” Land said. 57 I agreed. Then as we passed within two miles of an island, the ship struck a reef with such violence that I was knocked off my feet.

The forest of Crespo was composed of large, treelike plants. Everything grew straight up toward the surface, changing shape only as I pushed them aside when I walked. 50 When we finally stopped to rest, I dozed off and awoke to find a huge spider crab eyeing me. I shuddered with horror as I rose to my feet, and Nemo’s companion bashed the crab with his rifle butt. The crab writhed in horrible convulsions from the blow. We walked on until we reached the very edge of the island. Nemo turned us around.

We leaped up. Twenty or so natives armed with bows and slings walked slowly toward us. 60 Land tucked the boar meat under one arm and gathered the rest of our supplies as fast as he could. We pushed the dinghy into the water. The men on the beach ran into the water after us, shouting and waving their arms.
