Now we are now over run with fish. We caught an 8kg spanish mackerel
yesterday. Well, maybe it's a spanish mackerel. The identification is a bit
uncertain. It could also be a variety of kingfish or wahoo. Anyway it's of
the family Scombridae. Excellent eating. I wish I had a freezer. With
welcome donations of beer from Trevor on 'Sarenity' and banana cake from Bob
on 'Briana' everything is going well.
We are passing a part of the coast thick with volcanic ash cones and
craters. They all look as if they were active yesterday but in this dry and
dusty climate they are going to be around for a while. The only signs of
human activity recently have been a few abandoned fishermen's bothies and
one rusty oil tanker wrecked on the beach.
