Alex and I went for an early snorkel, not meaning to go as far as yesterday, our two dots (not far from the corner) suggests we went quite a long way........

We stop to wave to Bear just as we found yesterday’s Nemo. Sadly, the tide was in and we had two more metres over the coral so visibility was even worse.

The At-Venturers on their way back to Beez Neez – lovely to have someone to snorkel big distances with.

After lunch, at a quarter past two, we set off for Al’s Bay, his choice and planned route of 8.9 nautical miles. The sky very, very dark.
