We SAILED today. Not the whole day, and not particularly fast, but we sailed. It was glorious. This part of Indonesia reminds me a bit of Vavau, Tonga, though I won’t be able to tell you why.
Tonight we found a snug little anchorage in between 4 islands. The current coming in was insane, but as soon as we got over a bitty bar, it flattened right out. It feels like an anchorage for the books; flat and tranquil; gorgeous beaches; no people.
Sadly we can’t stick around to enjoy it. We are off at the crack of dawn.
