Picking up the pace, Double Island and Prudhoe Island

With no wind in sight, we motored to Double Island to explore. While other boats on the horizon attempted to sail, we opted to hang out the laundry.

Double Island was beautiful, whales were swimming past, there was lovely shells on the beach, plenty of oysters and the bay was very picturesque. Visibility was quite low and the coral was not so nice so the snorkeling plan was abandoned.

We carried on to Prudhoe Island to anchor for the night. Here I was able to invest some time in my favourite pastime – beachcombing. It’s amazing what you can find on the shores with the key to success being persistence. My best find so far is some nice shells but friends have found wetsuits; ropes and all sorts of useful boating stuff washed off others decks.
