Woohoo we're are at WoHa! This is truly our first anchorage here in Indonesia. We don't count the days at anchor outside the city of Tual because it was not that nice and we were only there to clear customs, provision and refuel (all of which took lots of time!). Once all that was completed, we sailed about 30 nm around the island to the west and arrived at this amazing place.

There is a 2km sand spit that rises from the sea at low tide and it's incredible to see and experience this secret place in nature. We've never seen anything like it on all our travels so, of course, we had to swim, snorkel, kite surf, walk and shoot lots of photos. It was also a great opportunity for me to get some action with our Dji Phantom 4 drone. For sure you'll see some of this footage in a future 'Tracy Video' and in an upcoming photo gallery. As a tease, see the photo below shot today from the end of the sand spit at about 100 meter high from the drone. An incredible place!

It's so wonderful to able to be back at anchor again and enjoy all the nature around us! Everyone is finally sleeping well and relaxing... just what we needed!

    It looks just amazing. We envy you the warm waters and the swimming. It is Spring here from tomorrow but still cold. It is nice to see our garden come to life with new growth and flowers but looking forward to have the doors open and wearing summer clothes again. Tracy, Michael is now driving a pair of Welsh ponies. Grand daughter Phoebe, almost sixteen is learning to drive and has a natural talent.
