The weather was still great but it was going to pick up in the next couple of days, so rather than have to sit out the blow on the outer reef, we decided to make tracks and head for Low Isles which was over eight hours away.
Rather than spend a long boring day getting there we broke the trip half way at Tongue Reef. We dropped anchor in about 10m in a sandy patch on the edge of the reef. If it blew up unexpectedly that night we wouldn’t have much protection so we hoped the forecast was going to be accurate.
The hunters went off with their spears again for the afternoon, while the gatherers lazed around the decks. After a few hours, they came back with a few fish and crayfish to keep us going on seafood and we finished the day off with sundowners on Tic Tac once again.
