We witnessed our first Pecalin fight this morning. These two ladies got down and dirty, one had the others head in her mouth for what seemed like an endless battle. No real reason other than one getting the hump.

We spent the day tidying and Johnny delivered our Zarpe clearing us to move first thing in the morning. Then ashore later for a few more bits and time for a tourist shot with a teenage chap.

Then a final treat. At least mine was slightly smaller than Bear’s. But at least mine has some healthy fruit. Grrrrrr.

Just as well as we could spend a very long time here and there is just too much to see around the corner.
