Conception Island

We said our farewells in Georgetown and sailed off for the uninhabited Conception Island. It is an open roadstead and unfavorable for any kind of westerly wind, so we plan to only stay two sleeps. It is truly beautiful here. A long curved sandy white beach with the breath-taking varied aqua blue waters. It is also littered with reefs and coral heads. I hope you can see some of the details on Google Earth. We explored by dinghy this afternoon and hope to do some hiking tomorrow.

Today's fishing efforts did not land a fish, however we hooked a very large wahoo. It did some dancing and then managed to get off the hook before Myron could even get to the aft deck and start working the reel. Alas, we will fish again and hope someday soon to report a catch. We eat well enough in the meantime and just polished off a chicken dinner with broccoli and mushroom couscous.

Time to prepare for bed.

Love to all,
Dena
