Abelikie Bay is on the north coast of Meghanisi and is basically just over the headland from the village of Vathi. It has a number of separate fingers which results in a good area for anchoring up for the night.
As we come into the bay several of the boats are already rafted up, bow anchors down, kedge anchors ashore and dug into the beach. We add ourselves onto the starboard side of rhe raft, dropping the main anchor and tying up alongside the end boat whilst we get the dinghy ready to take the kedge in.
It a beach party / picnic tonight, the Hostie has been doing dips, punch etc and if everything goes to form there will also be some silly games and a bit of a sing song.
We are getting towards the end of the trip and can discuss our travels, including a chance to hear what everybody got up to during the free-sailing period.
