Moving on in Sumatra

But all good things come to an end. We needed to start heading south towards Simeleu island, where Michele Moran is joining the crew on the 10th. So we were off at 0800 today for a 45 mile sail to an anchorage on mainland Sumatra called Seudu--where we are now. Some nice sailing, but much of the day under engine as very little wind before midday.
Tomorrow we plan to sail to Pulau Raya.
Sumatra is as beguiling as much of Indonesia. Mountainous, very green, semi active volcanos, fishermen in small boats, very basic houses, sudden thunderstorms, smiling children whose English is limited to two words--Manchester United! Lovely people.
All is well on board Simanderal.
