Our trusty expresso coffee machine jumped off the galley bench this morning and this tiime the damage is terminal. Leaving the relatively calm waters of the lagoon this morning we were surprised by the extreme rolling motion outside the reef. For an hour or so we chased the contents of cupboards, fruit baskets, and the refigerator around the boat. Fortunately the sea state has moderated and a dark-and-stormy taken at 5.30 has improved our mood.
