Wrecked in Paradise!

Late afternoon I got the Outboard going so we hit the beach to check out the wreck! the Island is only about 8 miles from VUDA and is very beautiful. Day trippers would swamp the island in this boat, 60 at a time, but two months ago, the wind shifted while at anchor and they swung onto the reef, damaged their prop..then while fixing it a week later, the big storms that trapped me in China and flooded everywhere just weeks ago, finally wrecked the boat! Two guys from the village who own the island are looking after the island now. They were left with water, rice and tins of tuna and coconuts of course. They sleep in the top deck “captains cabin” to keep away from the mosquitos under the trees at night!…Don
