Early in the morning we anchored off a little island to the north of Sumbawa. We took the little boat over the coral and climbed up and then down to the saltwater lake in the middle. The island is a donut. Everyone swam in the lake and then climbed up the donut to get a view of both the lake and the ocean on the other side. Pretty strange.
We came back to the boat for breakfast and then jumped back in for some snorkelling
We had a long day's sailing ahead of us, so we relaxed on board and watched Sumbawa slip by to our right. It wasn't until almost sunset that we stopped at a deserted beach in the north of the island to take a break. We walked along the beach looking for crabs and shells.
Tomorrow morning we will be at Komodo Island.
