I think we came up with something to top dining at The Rock.
Yesterday we rode a boat out to a small island in the Zanzibar archipelago. Just us and the 4 boat guys/lunch preparers.
First we snorkelled off the boat. I saw a couple schools of fish - so interesting to watch their mob mentality. Love snorkelling.
There was a slight hiccup when we headed into the beach - the engine wouldn't start and they had to paddle us in. A picnic on the sand, including cigal lobster, octopus and tuna, all so fresh.
Swimming off the sand bank, which gradually disappeared under the rising tide. Beautiful turquoise water, all to ourselves.
Hoisting the sail for the trip back to shore. (The engine was fixed, so just because we could.) Wood, rope and old canvas - so majestic.
