Touta turned up, a French family on a Sun Odyssey 44 that did the rally with us. Julien invited me to go scuba diving with him so we went out to Pigeon Island in search of the underwater statue of Cousteu. We found the statue in 10 or 12 metres of water, apparently if you touch Cousteau's head you have good diving for the rest of your life, we are both now so blessed.

There were a few decent crayfish wandering around in the open, huge snapper, hundreds of colourful reef fish, plenty of coral and a sea turtle grazing on a piece of coral. Per usual, the turtle was not at all bothered with silly bubble blowing humans. Actually all of the fish are very comfortable with people, Asia reached out and touched a fish when snorkelling, the crayfish didn't back off when approached and the snapper would come within 3 feet no problem. Such a shame our camera is only good for ten metres, need that Go Pro!

We have been six days here now, time to move on towards Antiqua.
