Before doing so I visited the fish market and picked up these tasty little treats. 3 parrot fish and a couple of grouper. The larger of the parrot fish I cooked up the same day, and put the other four in the freezer to eat during the trip.
The first anchorage I went to was Fagaloa Bay, which was nice and scenic. On the way in I passed this village directly below a waterfall.
After a day or so snorkelling and some time walking on shore, I decided there wasn't much to do there and headed to the next bay, Falefa Bay.
Falefa Bay has an odd little island sticking out of the coral reef at the entrance to the bay, and a village along one side. I did a bit more snorkelling around the reef near where I anchored, and then headed out in the dinghy along the shore.
Just outside of the bay I found a small resort where I stopped to order some lunch and tried to get a recharge on my SIM card (no luck there), but also found this rock pool nearby.
Unfortunately on the way back to Chiara Stella I broke another shear pin in the outboard -- and since that's the third one so far this trip I have no more spares. So I will have to head back to Apia on Monday in order to try to source a replacement. I know of a few motor service centres there, hopefully someone will have a pin that I can use. Without it I'm reduced to rowing if I want to use the dinghy which is a bit of a pain.
In the mean time, tomorrow will be spent cleaning and tidying, and perhaps cooking one more of the parrot fish for lunch.
