HOW DO WE HAVE THIS PLACE ALL TO OURSELVES!!! This has to be closest to the best place we have ever been.
In this episode, we are anchored in an extremely remote atoll in Indonesia. We have been trying to reach this place for years and with a few perfect days of weather, we have been maximising our time here. Spearfishing to catch food and swimming in the most clearest blue water. We have been out here for a few days now and loving living life off grid and secluded away from the rest of the world. Being so remote, we have to always be cautious as the weather can change at any minute. Sunshine and clear skies one minute, 30 knots and stormy the next. Dealing with massive frontal systems is why people stay away from this location, not us... Here we are in the middle of it!
One of the best places we have ever gone to! How can we have this atoll all to ourselves!!!
In this episode, we reach our dream destination of an atoll in the middle of no where! We have wanted to sail to this place for years now and to finally reach this destination is a dream come true. After rising early to beat the trade winds, we have a reasonably smooth sail out to the atoll. Not wasting anytime, as soon as the anchor is down, we are in the tender and off to explore this magnificent wonderland. With a tiny island inside the lagoon, the ladies hang out on the beach whilst the dad goes hunting for dinner. Spearing a monster Coral trout, we head to the beach to cook up this delicious fish. Trying a new way of cooking, it turned out delicious. What an end to a magical day.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, after a visit from the Malaysian customs, we decide it is time to head back to town to replenish our fresh supplies and learn more about the current world pandemic. After the ladies complete the food shopping, we learnt it was too early to be back around people. We head straight back to Nandji and set some sails and got as far away as we were allowed, time to spend another month off grid of lockdown living. Rather than return to Angry monkey beach, we find a new anchorage at the bottom of some cliffs. With no internet for two weeks, we move Nandji again closer to a beach where the Whippet can stretch his legs easily. With no other people around for weeks, the noises of the jungle really made it feel we were a long way from anyone or anything. A great place to hide away and let the world heal.
