Ratua island (part 2)

We love the anchorage near Ratua island and find it hard to leave: crystal clear water, great snorkeling, lots of turtles to swim with and some great friends to hang out with. Our buddy boat Toucan turned up from Fiji; they are on their way to Australia and stopped in Santo to do one more goodbye. We also met a few other boats including one other kid boat. We could stay here longer but we need to start thinking about provisioning and getting organised for our trip north…
