Today we motored to the anchorage at
Cantera. For the younger viewers of this blog we passed this headland which we
all felt looked rather like the lion in 'The Lion King'!!
As we approached the anchorage I was concerned that
there may be isolated uncharted rocks in the bay so we sent the crew up the mast
to look down and shout if they saw anything untoward.
Fortunately they didn't and we didn't encounter anything
Cantara is a small bay with a old disused fish canning factory at its
head. Unfortunately, the skipper forgot to take a picture of the bay!
It provided a lovely venue for a quiet evening. We did go ashore and
explore the old factory, but it wasn't quite as deserted as the pilot book
suggested and seemed to have at least two human inhabitants (who we didn't
see until we were back on the boat) who had that morning hung out
their washing! It was windy and the whole place was rather creepy, dead silent
except for the odd banging piece of wood. We had plans to use the BBQ and cook
ashore, but it didn't feel good so we ate on board.
