I spent most of the morning, after breakfast of French Toast and coffee, looking and editing the pictures of the previous days and updating this blog; but finally managed to leave the boat around 13:00 for a dive around the Créole Rock island. Then a bit of maintenance on the boat which led up to a viewing of sunset with Audrey and Darrell accompanied with a bit of garlic bread before heading ashore for postprandial delights at Calmos Café, in my case a beef satay and for them their dessert as they'd already eaten dinner aboard Leila.
