The various books and logs said that if we landed on the beach we would find a path over the hillside to the other side of the island - correct
The path is to the left of the fallen palm at the right of the photograph. The hillside behind had been devastated by a fire a few days earlier
and meet Sarah and Sanita who farm there, also correct.
Sarah and Sanita with their daughter. A gift of foodstuffs was well received
Sanita showed us where the buoy marking the aeroplane was situated well out in the shallows.
It is out there somewhere
There is not much aeroplane left but it made for a very interesting snorkel
