Late afternoon yesterday we anchored off the beach in a
delightful little bay called Tadri.
There was lots of activity on the beach with people playing
and swimming and soon after we arrived several cows came roaming along too.
The beach is dotted with low, coconut roofed, shack restaurants
painted bright colours which are all lit up at night.
Miss Tippy arrived first and were soon boarded by the Indian
Customs who seem to have look outs all along the coast.
They said it was ok for us all to stay over the night but
they are returning this morning for copies of passports, crew list, visas and
Port clearance from each yacht.
Luckily Brian has a scanner on board as we haven’t any
copies of our port clearance since it was only issued just before we left Cochin.
This morning we plan to clean the bottom of Blue Magic before
we leave so that we are more efficient in our fuel consumption.
