After our misadventures near Rote and city life in Kupang, we decided to stay a few days when we found an idyllic spot to anchor between two islands in the Savu Sea. There was not another boat or another human to be seen anywhere and we enjoyed the peace and natural beauty, and pods of dolphins swimming by!
Joe kayaked to the shore with me and Greg swimming behind him. The salt and pepper sand beach was warm, and the crystal water like a bath.
Greg hiked up the side of a hill to get the photo below, with Cocokai anchored out and me and Joe on the beach with the kayak.
After exploring the beach we headed back to the boat, but this time swimming against the current. Flowing between the two islands the water created quite a drag, and not in the direction I wanted to go! Got a bit of a workout.
It was at this spot that we snorkeled and I saw a lion fish! Spectacular coral of every color and shape you could imagine. Truly like a disney movie but real! Giant brain coral, huge orange fans, purple thorny star fish that must have been a foot wide!
Greg, who has been diving and snorkeling around the world, put it in his top three. In the WORLD!
