Tortuga is an island of fishermen, Cacti and coral reefs. It is also the place where I learnt about star fish and pansy shells. There was a peninsula which due to rough weather became an island. I spent a day with island fling and went to Las Tortugas an island about 3 miles away. The water there is clear, fishing great and pansy shells are scattered along the sandy bottom.

The view from the saloon window. Exactly what we were looking for!

Totally zoned man! Sailing is sometimes hard work, (look at my hands darling) and sometimes very relaxing. Here Mike gets all draped over the pulpit and falls asleep watching the bow wave. We were on our way to Los Roques
