#3 – A Picture A Day for Seven Days

April 18, 2015

After the last couple of photos I thought I had best include a more idyllic picture of life in the tropics.  Our anchorage has only one other sailboat, Silver Girl, anchored inside the reef.  It’s not a large anchorage but it’s very secure.  There are a few local boats at anchor and a number of others that are tied to a concrete wall.  The Maldives coastguard has two small boats tied to the wall and there is a police boat.

The other cruising boats, 9 of them, have opted for the anchorage outside the reef leaving them exposed to weather but generally now the wind is from the south-west and that puts them on the lee side of the land providing flat water protection. They don’t get the flies we do!

So, here it is in all its glory….

    Quite jealous that we never made it to Gan (yet). Thanks for the little taster, chaps!
