We spent very nice days by Green island. Green island is one of the few islands that it is easy to all the way around, and so we did. And on a nearby dup (island) we had some nice snorkeling. One of the days we had 5 hours of rain. That is rare here in February. The wind turned to south east from the normal north east. But the next day the trade winds were back, and no more than 6 - 10 knots.
Now we have moved to Salardup, and we shall stay here one night. This is another nice anchorage protected by the may reefs, and close to another palm island. This one has a small shelter for tourists. I think backpackers may stay over night here, but most are day tourists. We share the anchorage with French, Canadian, Polish and Italian boats, and one unidentified.
Tomorrow we start to go back to Shelter Bay. We think we shall do the trip over three days, so we plan for only day sailing.
