Banyan Tree

This Bay that we are anchored in has a giant Banyan tree. It is related to the fig tree and the fruit is small, red and eaten by the local bird life as well as the many bat species here.

We met David, the owner of the island on the beach. He lives here with his wife and we swapped some fish and shirts for some lemons and limes.

We went snorkeling today at the coral gardens just around the corner from where we are anchored. This is the first time I've snorkeled outside of the Caribbean and I was blown away by the diversity of the fish. At one rock I saw a sea slug, a couple of large sea urchins and about 20 varieties of fish. Incredible! No photos because Steve had a slight accident with his GoPro and mine is back in the USA because I never guessed in a million years that I would get the opportunity to sail in the Pacific Islands.
