At half past ten we left our ‘snug’ in the Ship’s Sound for the seven mile journey – overland...........to Batuva Harbour. We actually retraced our path back toward the pass, turned right and motored by past enormous rocks, for the most part in fifty feet of water.

I’m rather fond of this Scott-Free shot where she is dwarfed by her surroundings.

Entering Batuva Harbour - a natural deep shelter, we snuck left to find shallow water in a cul-de-sac.

Our cul-de-sac, definitely to be explored in Baby Beez. We anchored in twenty one feet.

After lamb shanks on Beez, we spent the afternoon chatting. Maj had made a delicious banana cake and we rationed ourselves to half which was incredibly difficult and Bear had to sit on his hands....... the other half we sliced ready to take with us on the morrow to savour at the top of the hill, several stairs and a bit of a trudge apparently.......... Later, I demonstrated how I will fend off bities no need to explain how that took Maj. As we bade each other ‘farewell’ in the cockpit we heard a loud Shhhhh. Stunned as it was only half nine, we quieted and heard it again. By the time Steve and Chris had got home the Shhh-ing was almost continuous. It took a while to twig that it was bats getting cross with us, nothing compared to their sporadic chatter through the night but it did make for a bit of a change...........
