Oceanview Marina

04 December 2013 | Samal Island
It might look a bit boring, but
we were very glad to be in here while typhoon Yolanda approached; in the end it
passed 200 miles north; we only got some rain. Further north the damage
is great, as I am sure you know. If you could donate something it would
be very helpful. Yachties here and in Cebu have organised a grass-roots,
no middlemen, no bureaucrats aid program you can donate at

The marina is owned by a local family; it provides work for many
Filipinos who look after the needs of us yachties, and in the process
live much of their lives here, so we get to know some of them and their
families, which is very rewarding for us.

Armed escort

19 October 2013 | near Indo/Philippine border
Two village elders, the coastguard and armed soldiers escorted us up the sacred hill on Pulau Miangas. This tiny dot close to the Philippine/Indonesia border is host to many official groups, who graciously and generously looked after us during our stay.

Motoring up the channel

19 October 2013 | Davao
A couple more nights, a lot more unlit fishing platforms, and we felt ready for a rest as we motored toward Davao.

Tree snake

12 October 2013 | Bunaken Island, Sulawesi
We managed to restore this green tree snake to an overhanging branch and he quickly slid away among the leaves.

Manado Ferry terminal

08 October 2013 | Sulawesi
We catch the ferry in from Bunaken to shop and to deal with clearance out processes.
