We got up to a beautiful Pacific Island morning in Katherine Bay, even the tatty copra shed looked neat.

Very lovely to be nestled by the mangroves but discipline wins, well it is always so easy to stay put and enjoy the scenery – hence why it has taken us seven years to get this far...... The anchor was up at half past ten for the fourteen mile hop up the coast.

Out of the bay and turn right at the hard stuff.

We re-lived our bus journey of yesterday, the road barely showing in the trees.

Elizabeth Bay can be used as an anchorage, again behind a reef.

To our right the shallow reef, us tucked in, to our left we could just see the pale reef.

We anchored behind the pale blue line. Idyllic.
 
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL SO VERY PEACEFUL
                     SAFELY TUCKED UP, TIME FOR A SNORKEL
