Between 10 - 16 August. Delayed due to missing network
The 3 of us on board of Cognac The Captain (“ Bobby” ) The Admiral (Tinker ) and The Purser (Woofer –Gary ) have left the anchorage in Alor altogether with the rubbish of the city in our wake.
With an 8-9 knots tide behind us we found a very nice and quite anchorage where we decided to stop for the night. This was one of 2 anchorages on our way to Lembata. This was really our first time we had a chance to visit a small fishing village. The first thing that happened was arrival of lots and lots of small canoes/boats with families just coming to have a look and call out to us “MISTER MISTER” maybe expecting to be given a something a gift which was really lovely and welcoming and after couple of hours a bit tiring. Had a group of teenage boys that stayed around and played and played with Robert ending up in the absolutely crystal clear water with them. NICE!

|Roasted bananas on the beach...tasted a bit like hard potatoes with|
banana flavour ans sand.
|and the typical...same...same really.This was a clean village by comparison.|
|Told you this was a classic...|
|Really simple and sometimes qute houses|
|Pig pet...why not...|
We stayed as long as we could before our last stretch before Lembata and enjoyed every bit of it even the early morning “singing wake up calls”.
