We took the dinghy out for a snorkeling trip today. The water here is about 80 degrees and crystal clear. We spent some time just swimming over groups of hundreds of fish. Very cool. The only downside was the current. We had to make sure that we were not drifting too far from the dinghy.
After a bit of snorkeling we went into a very calm and protected area and just hung out in the water for a while. Then we discovered that we had anchored above a sunken boat that was slowly rotting away. So on went the fins and masks again for some more snorkeling. What a great day.
More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
