We arrived in Yelappa yesterday around noon, tied to a mooring for the day ( or so we thought , ended up staying the night but we anchored)
We went for a tour to the waterfall on horses – actually only Steve and Kyle had hores the girls and I had donkeys, was good fun. This was the first time the kids had ridden a horse on their own.Saw the small town of Yelappa. There are no cars here. Just horses and quads . Absolutely beautiful!! Jungle jungle and more jungle . gorgeous flowers everywhere, butterflies and birds. And lots of trees, palms and others I don’t know what they are called. But I got my green and my trees!!
We all went for a great swim in the ocean swells, warm water !! the bay is very deep and has quite the steep beach – tells you that they get some good waves!!
We set a stern anchor for the first time, sat fine all night until about 6am when our friends of Tillicum woke us cause the stern anchor either let go or dragged, but we were slowly coming on them. So we had quite the morning resetting that. We are anchored both bow and stern as the bay is a very difficult anchorage because of how deep it is and not a lot of swing room. It’s a lot of work pulling that stern anchor. I sure appreciate the windless on the bow, couldn’t imagine pulling that one up!!Enjoy the pictures
