Having learned from last May, we tied a tripping line and buoy to our anchor, in the hope that it wouldn't be lifted by an early morning departure, leaving us drifting towards other yachts. It worked a treat, as other yachts gave it a wide berth, allowing us a bit of space and Sarah to relax enough to sleep at night.
Although the water was a bit choppy and a little turbid, we swam on different reefs and saw colourful coral and an array of fish. We were joined by turtles, found an octopus hiding in a hole and managed to avoid the string of the ray. Despite there being several yachts anchored in the lagoon, we were able to swim in peace out on the reef. Pretending we were the only people in Paradise.

We thought our photos could do it more justice than our words. Especially as Darrell doesn't want me to get poetic.
