Но любая честная попытка объяснить такие исключительно маловероятные вещи, как джунгли, коралловый риф или Вселенная, должна, по меньшей мере, предлагать вниманию "кран", но не "небесный крюк".

And he sat about the front looking at the lagoon, and at sunset he would go down and look at Murea. He used to go fishing on the reef.

Thomas Hudson came up slowly to almost touch the reef, seeing the big brown coral heads, the black sea urchins on the sand, and the purple sea fans swaying toward him with the tide.
Томас Хадсон медленно подвел катер почти вплотную к рифу и увидел большие бурые коралловые полипы, черных морских ежей на песке и лиловые опахала морского пера, покачивавшиеся ему навстречу вместе с приливом.
