Sumatra Islands Photos

Leaving Sinabang

Into the mangroves between the islands. I know I keep showing that the charts are off, but in this case they are pretty useless!

No sign of humanity other than a distant call to prayer and an occasional engine on an unseen road

Until morning, when we are offered the red snapper they caught, that he is cutting up for us

 

image
Selamat pagi…good morning

 

image
Trash in the water is a problem throughout Indonesia, but we seemed to sail through the vortex where it accumulates!

Approaching Lasia, dolphins welcome us, but they don’t stop to play

Squall

Threatening, but didn’t amount to much

This little guy, on the other hand, turned into half a day of rain

Time to wash sheets!

Struggling to communicate…

Bay of Plenty. Surfer boat on left; world class surfing off the point, though pretty small today.

More interesting weather

Approaching Nias

 

image
There aren’t many aids to navigation in this part of the world, but here’s a major one on the north coast of Nias.

Rain on the perfectly calm water, anchored at Lahewa, Nias.

At Lahewa we buy fruit and veggies and have a simple meal (rice and fish) ashore. Back at the boat, some kids swim out. And…more on the way behind them!

 

image
We lined them up for a photo, but more kept coming. In all I think we had 20 come aboard!

 

image
It wasn’t easy getting the party to end, but here most are swimming back ashore, still waving for the photo.

  1. Hi Zeke, nice to follow your trip 🙂 About the waste patches: when you run into waste could you also add the coordinates with the photo ? and would it be possible to ask others to do so to and mail to me at nina@indonesianwaste.org – any input of data welcome. Thanks and safe travels 🙂 bye, nina
