Photo update No 2 - Aneityum

Aneitum is a beautiful island, densely wooded and with streams and rivers flowing down from its peaks. There are several villages around the shoreline but Anelcauhat, where we anchored, is the biggest (about 500 people) with a primary and a secondary school and three churches.

Sandy beaches ....

Found one!

Laura a bit unsure of the ethics of grabbing wild animals from their habitat!


One of the many species of reef fish - this is a Honeycomb Grouper - Epinephelus merra (Laura is teaching us things!)
