    ... narrow straight between the mainland and York Island. We stayed in Umagico for three nights to regroup, clean and rest. After packing up in the rain we headed back down the bumpy road with Coen in our sights for that night.

We got back to the room in the hope we could watch a movie but there was no movie channel and as it was only about 7.30 there wasn't really anything worth watching. We ended up switching off the TV to do a crossword to pass some time so we could get to a reasonable hour before going to bed. We made it to 8.30 and gave up.
