We forget that our life totally revolves around water. We shall miss the sea when we get our land legs again but for now we are enjoying swimming practically every day and exploring the underwater gardens and sealife.
Getting out of the atoll passes is always interesting with the tide roaring away even at slack tide — and depending on the previous weather the water does what it wants and ignores tide timetables anyway.
We are always careful to time it to the minimum tide possible together with the sun directly overhead so we can see the shallow water and coral bommies. Even so it’s quite exciting entering and exiting them.
Once inside the water is so clear you can see exactly how we float our anchor chain to avoid the coral bommies. Which means you can anchor off delightful reef anchorages like these. Perfect cruising life!
