Vi handlet litt mat i byen og bunkret godt med vann og brus siden butikken med drikkevarer lå bare 40m fra jollebryggen - svært lettvint. Deretter reiste vi ut til en liten øy som heter Ilet de Cabrit, en sjømil fra der vi har ligget de siste nettene. Her badet vi og nøt det fine været - inntil det begynte å regne! Siden jeg skrev i gårsdagens blog at det ikke regner her, måtte det selvfølgelig komme en rettelse i dag. Da var det ikke mye vits å ligge der lenger, og vi drog tilbake til hovedøya der vi iallfall har internettilkobling for å sende bloggen. Posisjonen her er fra dagsturen vår. Dagens bilde viser Ilet de Cabrit, tatt fra Fort Napoleopn i går.
 
Rønnaug med Ilet de Cabrit rett over hodet hennes - ankerplassen er bak åsen.

We made an early trip ashore to but food and restock our bottled water and fizzy pop supplies - there is a drinks shop just by the dinghy dock, so it was a good time to buy some heavy items. We then weighed anchor and motored about one mile to a small anchorage off the island of Ilet de Cabrit where we enjoyed a nice swim and then lunch in the fine weather. The snorkelling here was reasonable, though not a patch on some places we have been to. In the afternoon it started to rain - typical as I had pontificated at length yesterday about how it doesn't rain much here. There wasn't much point in staying at Ilet de Cabrit in the rain, so we returned to the main harbour where we do at least have internet WiFi to enable me to send this blog. The position is of our day anchorage. Today's picture shows Ilet de Cabrit taken from Fort Napoleon.
