Time to snorkel off Gilligan’s island. There is a pass on each side of the island. So that means current. But off the shore facing the Lagoon there is not much current and a cool reef. Then we hiked around the island and out to the reef that is swallowing the surf. It’s like Mars. Back to STW for dinner. The wind is up so I reset the anchor to give us more shelter from the island. The stars come out seriously. No moon yet and few clouds. Fascination with the stars does not seem to wear off.
Nice sail back east to Avatoru. When we got there the chart marked some anchorages. Um no. Way too shallow, way too much current. We picked a different spot. I dingy to shore to see if there are eggs or yogurt. Um no. It’s Monday and the supply ship is due Friday. Interesting way to run a railroad. So we head back South to Tiputa pass anchorage.
