Position: 3º 17.1′ S 100º 26.952′ E
Moved anchorage this morning to a less rolly spot. This anchorage is closer to a little village as well.

At one point in the afternoon we were visited by a group of local kids in dugout canoes. One of them was leaking pretty seriously, but the kids were having fun bailing it, flipping it over, and bailing it again. Miles, little cruiser boy that he is, jumped right in and started trying to plug the holes. He started with paper towel, then a piece of rope. They used various items to shove the rope into the hole, and perhaps even had some success. These kids didn’t speak Bahasa Indonesia (some local language) so we didn’t even have the barest communication with them. Watching Miles help out fellow mariners filled my heart with pride.

In other news, Vick made mint chocolate truffles to share with our friends as a “passage present.” All is well.
