snorkelling with huge humphead parrot fish this afternoon was great.motored,as no wind, 30 nm south of port blair,intime for lunch using kerrys freshly made bread.also made water all the way-still a thrill. put up our new shade covers and they work well keeping boat much cooler.the 3 ladies donned stinger suits and off we went in dinghy,sophie at the helm.lovely little deserted island,palmtress,no-one else here.chicken soup for dinner-fresh chicken and lots of local fresh veges-so nice.tomorrow our permit,which took visits on 3 sucessive days to forestry dept,allows to go ashore! Ww will be trying to spot spotted der,and monotor monitor lizards.
