Gutob Bay

Alishan left Coron Town...and managed a downwind sail to a little bay with the new name: Puerto Del Sol.
12 degree 01.1N
119 degree 58.7E
The next morning we made a pleasant dinghy trip up the Dipuyoy River...bringing back old memories of the Kinabatanga River. Of course no monkeys, elephants etc to be seen, just a few birds were spotted.
Now the anchor is at:
12 degree 09.9N
119 degree 51.9E
To get here we had as usual wind on the nose;-)) Mind you, it's only a small sea breeze and the trip less than 10 miles. Zigzagging around the shallow spots, the many cute islands( palm trees, with beaches, blue sky..), plenty of happy waving fishermen and the p-p-p-p-p-pearl farms.
After here, 1 more stop at Busuanga Island: Africa here we come! (???)
Salute, from a 34.5 degree C cabin.
