Back to Minerva Reef - Pictures

It was nice to be back to Minerva Reef after missing it on last year's passage north.  Liz wrote about our stay there here and here are some pictures:

Benjamin checking out the booby that stopped by to visit a few times.  The bird is a long way from any land !
Our friends on Vareki weighing anchor.  It was a bit rolly with 5.3m swell outside the anchorage.  Good thing their boat is steel with the anchor swinging like it was.

SV Code Blue pitching in the swell.

And, of course, it would be boring if nothing to fix.
