Ndendo, Solomon Islands

From Vanuatu we sailed to the Solomons and we arrived in Ndendo Island, the most western island, where a temporary clearance was possible. The very deep bay made anchoring tricky and a long dinghy ride into town proved unnecessary as the officials were getting ready to come to our boat. The Customs lady searched the boat but found nothing illegal. We were stamped into the country and after a brief trip up the river, to splash around in a natural spring, we weighed anchor early the next morning and headed for the Reef Island, in search of two buddy boats.
