This perfect atoll with white coral sand and it's own reef is uninhabited . We anchored here last year but didnot go ashore because of mechanical problems . We hae the island to ourseles .The palm trees are laden with coconuts but too high for us to reach .The sea grapes are coered in fruit .The sea is clear and full of small fish . This is where we first heard the whalesong last year . No whales sighted yet but tonight is the full moon so who knows. The weather is settled for the next few days so its chill out , sail sun and swim
