We tacked up into this bay, across the shallow, narrow channel. We had to go in past the karst islands to find the other boats anchored back in the back bay. On the islands were lots of baobab trees. These giant trees, aka bottle trees or upside down trees because their branches look like a root system in the air were scattered on the islands. Here is Karen showing the size of one of the big ones on the beach.
These baobabs are growing right out of the rocks!
The cool squiggly marks in the bark were interesting on this tree.
Mangrove mud with roots growing up out of the ooze. They remind me of soldiers marching across a field.
Even empty snack canisters were snatched up as treasures by these folks.

This is Zaree and her family in Village #3. We took more stuff to them to give away and generally got some mangoes in return.
Some of the bits of Spanish Mackerel that were left on the carcass after a quick fillet job ended up being marinaded and hung to dry for a nibbly snack. Bigger chunks would be called 'biltong' in South Africa, but I just made a few as Jason doesn't really like the stuff.
