Castaways!

Tuesday 7th March 2017
We spent a happy day anchored alone in a little bay on the south side of Isla Casaya. Emily paddled her new board and I headed up the far end of the beach to some interesting trees growing out of the sea on a rock shelf Here I found a comfortable rocks the shade and settled down to a happy hour of painting. Meanwhile I had also been thinking about all the lovely driftwood on the beach, all useful if we were castaway here. As if by telepathy Mark and Justin built an outrigger log canoe to escape the island. Then we had a go at lighting a fire by twizzling a stick. It got hot, but not enough to smoke.

That evening Mark and Justin went ashore again to build a bonfire, While i cooked supper During this Justin was stung by a scorpion. Fortunately he was ok

Be careful what you say!

A dinghy lost was (fortunately) recoverable but what if Tin Tin pulled anchor whilst you were all ashore?

Serious point well made. Flippantly it would have been a log outrigger V TinTin race 😀
