Hi Everyone,
We arrived in Ascension Island 4th Feb, at 10.10am GMT & Ascension,
734 miles - 5days 3hrs,30mins.
It's a volcanic Island, so everything is Black or Red, with a Green top
peak to one side.
There are no permanent residence only workers, not a friendly bunch.
We cleared customs & then tried to find somewhere to eat, no chance,
so back to the boat for lunch, the boat was swarming with black fish,
we found a dead flying fish on the deck and threw it over and they went
wild, so we didn't go in swimming.
At sun down we went to watch the Turtles come up the beach and lay
there eggs, it looks like it takes tremendous effort to get to dry sand
then they have to dig a big whole, lay the eggs and get back tin the water
long before it gets light.
So that was lovely to watch.
Hope All ok, Love Margaret &Alan xxxxxx
