Culatra continued…..

Did you enjoy the beautiful picture of our boat at the beach? Yes that was on Noel’s last blog. The truth is: I was sitting in front looking for shallows and Noel told me it was very deep there, over 5m he said. So I came and sit at the helm with him and within seconds I looked to my side and saw the sand.

Oops! Too late.

The current was so strong and tidal was going like crazy, within minutes it was a little island.

Because Noel gets more on the technical side of things, I must explain. To my family and friends that don’t sail: this is not our usual way to get to the beach! We normally Kayak swim there from the boat or even taken the dinghy.

In the meanwhile we enjoyed our time there while waiting for high tide to lift us up. The boat was going further and further uphill as the tide went out, it was impressive.

I put some chestnuts roasting, (I hadn’t tried the chestnuts I bought from a local in my hometown) I got in the dinghy took some pictures and even got to chat with some fisherman. Little did we know that what it looked like our own private little island happened to be a popular place to visit at low tide!
