IT IS TOO EARLY FOR TAKING PHOTOS OF A SUNRISE. WE HAVE STILL TIME FOR A WASH AND SWIM IN THE OCEAN. BEAUTIFUL SUN RISE – PHOTOS TAKEN AND WE ARE AGAIN ON OUR WAY AT ABOUT 8.00 am. OUR CREW IS BUSY FISHING FOR MACKERELS ALL THE TIME, WITH THE BEST RESULTS ACHIEVED BY THE CAPTAIN ‘S DWARF SISTER. SHE IS GREAT INDEED. BY THE TIME SHE LANDS FOUR MACKERELS, THE OTHER TWO FISHERMEN HAVE ONLY MANAGED ONE. IT IS NOW 9.00 am AND WE ARE APPROACHING ANOTHER SMALL ISLAND TO DO SOME SNORKELLING. THIS ISLE IS NOT AS COOL AS THE PREVIOUS ONE. THE CORALS ARE NOT AS INTERESTING AS BY THE PRECEDING ISLAND AND THEY ARE MUCH DEEPER, WELL OFF OUR RANGE.
