3rd April. Again. Sorry.

I spent yesterday doing some laundry, tightening the rigging, blowing up the big dinghy and various odd jobs around the boat. I went ashore at about 1600 to see how far it was to the airpoirt - about 5 minutes walk and to see what there was ashore. There are several beach bars / restaurants, a craft shop which seems to be based on a potter but with other souvenirs of an arty nature too, they. Appear too, to sell vegetables and so on but nothing was available by the time I looked, I’ll look again this morning. There is a small shop too and a watersports business.

I went back to the boat for sunset because I knew that the moorings people collected money then, which they did, 40 dollars which seems steep for what they provide but there we are. 

Once that was done I rowed ashore again for a plate of roti, which seems to be a local dish, a big round flatbread, not dissimilar to an Indian roti but thicker, wrapping up a curried concoction. on the inside. A good meal, I had the vegetarian option on account of the chicken not being available.

Once I’ve cleaned up a bit I’ll have a shower and go to meet everyone off the plane, which, hopefully, lands at 1140 ish.

My satphone doesn’t seem to want to work well in this anchorage but I have a phone signal so am using that.
