Arrived at Gili Lawa Laut after a grueling 7 mile sail. We left at 6:30am to try to catch the very brief Northing current. I’m not sure we were successful, but we got a very nice motor sail.
The snorkeling here was spectacular and it has been postulated that it may be better than Lizard Island. We had leftover birthday pizza and cake for lunch and are currently reflecting that a week which included a trip to a volcano, dragons, snorkeling in crystal clear water, pizza, and cake, may be the best week ever.
We may or may not move to another anchorage today. I’m voting no. There’s no sense in wearing ourselves out with another 7 miles of sailing.
All is well.
