Sajid, on the left, is managing the workers and maintenance folks here keeping the island resort from crumbling into the sea. He wanted to give us food and water and fish. We took the free water from this jetty before we left and he buzzed off on the motorcycle and returned with this worker and the seafood from their freezers. Two bonito, a huge red snapper and a lobster. He would've given us much more but we demurred. Such friendly folks for a resort island here. We hear stories of resorts running yachts off as they don't want us around their guests, so it was nice to be welcomed here. Look up the place on GoogleEarth and you can see what a gorgeous setting it is in.

Another one of our anchorages. Such pretty water. So nice to have shallow sandy bottoms to drop the hook into. We didn't go ashore, though, as we were moving nearly every day and spent our energy snorkeling the waters. We found a huge, anemone-covered bommie with 6-8 huge lobsters tucked back into a crack in it. Safe they were as we didn't dare brave the poisonous anemones to try to get them.
