It's midday and i've been ashore.Beautiful island fringed by white sandy beaches.Paradise but not the deserted island the books describe.Some beautiful houses,small airport and two shops.No Atm but I can get diesel here at 5US /gallon.
The water is clear and I am surrounded by fish.The sea is full of them.The turtles here swim around the boat and do not dive as they doin the Caribbean.
I am anchored inside a rocky reef.This highlights the advantage of forward looking sonar.Kept mee clear of the shallows last night.A must have if coming this way.L'esprit is floating over some good quality coral but the anchor is in sand.
Internet is fine here so probaly stay a little loner and see if I can work out how to add photos to this.
The weather seems settled for seven days so no wind no hurry
