You Cataracts and Hurricanoes, Spout

Well, the wind was not that bad but it blew strong straight onshore for days. This made trying to sail to remote islands er sort of not doable indeed dangerous. The sea outside the reef was big, powerful and heaving, a bit like the Springboks pack; not a good place to be.

We repaired the slightly battered Scaffie.

Beautiful weather but windy

Ospreys are back and fly over to see if the boat is OK.

Anyway, the upshot is that we do a lot a diving cos underwater there is no wind.

We dive at Sunabe. Above the water, it is concrete blocks but lots of good places to eat and a great store to rent tanks. Below the water, it is a paradise with truly, like awesome variety of soft coral.

Yay Okinawa – so easy to do stuff here
