Once Anchored at Boayan Island fishing around the many rocks was high on our agenda with Robin landing a great Tuna and all of us getting loads of Barracuda from around what we called “Barracuda Point” These were gratefully received by a small group of people living in the bay. The making of Sushi rolls the next day in the rough conditions ended up being to hard for poor old Robin.
The remaining of the fish was shared with Tim and Barb of Rubicon Star at Teodore Point BBQ style.
From Teodore Point we headed to Liminangcong a small town where Robin again hooked up this time a Brassy Trevally later to be had as Cevice, (Lunch). The following day put us in the Bacquit Archipelago. Cathedral caves were the nearby anchorage attraction. Tim took Robin and I took Pontus for a fishing competition. Our team recorded 1 bite, 2 bottom hook ups and a net around the dingy prop in the dark. Tim’s team got nothing but was halfway through a bottle of rum by the time we got back. Who were the winners? The galley was also closed on Tim’s boat when we got home leaving him to cook his own dinner.
Robin also managed to climb into a cave after a few dips in the sea only to find bird shit mostly on his hands. It entertained us anyway.
Since the weather was on the improve, a trip around some of the outer Islands was decided on before heading to Coron Coron for new years eve. Small Lagoon was the first stop.
The mosquitos were fierce at Big Lagoon where Sweden’s TV program Robinson was filmed.
With the loss of only a pint of blood each we headed around to secret beach, a hole in a rock wall that you swim through to enter a small lagoon. Anchoring in 25 meters over rocks wasn’t the highlight of my day.
With New Years Eve fast approaching, our house clean to be done and maybe a nap to fit in we headed to Coron Coron our nights anchorage for the festivities.
