Position at 1800 VST (-11) at anchor 15.22.2785S 167.11.3947E
Another quiet day on passage, a bit frustrating with the wind fadng in and out, necessitating the use of the engine for about 60ltrs of fuel. The highlights were seeing the glow from the active volcanoes on Ambrym Is as we passed at 0200, ad our arrival here in the still lagoon of Oyster Island.
Unfortunately we haven't been allowed ashore yet as we will not clear customs etc until tomorrow, so here we sit, too many beers and glasses of wine onboard, enjoying the stillness of the anchorage. This place already feels special, and it is the only country which Cate has been to which I haven't. Her only recommendation is "don't eat the fruit bat..."
Until tomorrow, TTFN
