Kauehi - southern anchorage
Here in the southern anchorage we have had wonderful days, snorkeling and beach combing. In the eastern anchorage we met Laurel and Leo on "Summer", a couple from San Francisco, around 40 of age. We spent some good time together. Leo appeared to be a rigger, and friendly as he is, he gave us a lot of help, not just advices.
When we moved to the southern anchorage, "Summer" did the same, and we had two nice days and did some excellent snorkeling on some big bummies (coral heads). We saw a lot of fish, most of them we did not know, but Leo told us that some of them were groupers. And we saw one small shark and a bigger one passed our boat when we watched from the cockpit.
We also walked on the small motus (islands on the reef), and Leo, who also climbed the coconut palms, gave us a coconut.
The days we have spent here are the kind of days we will be missing when we one time in the future stop sailing.
It is still raining this morning. We are not used to this kind of weather... (Back home, yes, but not here.)
