A Spuddle Around Mekiro
To Akamuru 025
We had just set out for our spuddle on Baby Beez when a man in a kayak met us. He introduced himself as Bertrand, owner of the pearl farm we had passed by. He asked about our keel depth and said we could go in a bit further. We said we would move after exploring a bit. As it was high tide he told us we could go all the way around Mekiro.

We could see many coral heads, seen as dark patches. In the shallow water rays sped about.

Away to our right the waves made quite a noise.

As we rounded Mekiro, the distance to Akamaru was more than we thought.

In ten feet of water the coral was easy to see in the clear water.

By the time we had gone all the way around Mekiro, Bertrand was just tying his kayak to his houseboat.

After our spuddle we moved Beez in a bit further. We went from thirty feet below us to five. We found a nice sandy area with coral on three sides. At low tide the heads are clearly visible behind Baby Beez.
