We arrived at Pulau Lasai this morning after an exciting night of dodging shrimp boats and lightning squalls.
This place is gorgeous. The kids rate is as their second favorite after Suwarrow. The water clarity is superb (50-100′), the snorkeling is reported to be excellent, and the island is deserted. We share the anchorage with “On Vera,” another US flagged boat from Alameda.
The kids and Vick had a swim to shore, made a raft, and designed our next few day’s entertainment while I caught up on sleep from the passage. Tomorrow we may build a hermit crab racetrack, or a foot massage parlor, or a bonfire, or perhaps we’ll do it all. I think, despite the abysmal internet, that we will not be leaving too quickly.
All is well.
