Had an interesting sendoff from the beach at Nogita. Junpei and his wife and daughter and the postmaster all helped out getting the boat down to the water. Conditions seemed Ok and I headed off.
Had not got so far before I was back into some steep waves – just beginning to white cap-!and a building sea breeze. briefly entertained the notion of returning to Nogita but remembered what happened to captain cook when he retuned to his last pacific Island!! My only other option was to make a landing thru surf onto this exposed beach. I could see a bunch of surfies enjoying the weekend conditions. Came in thru some good surf – the high braces would have made a good photo. I was happy to be back on terra firma. – the water is very cold- temp last night came down to 5 degrees
Have set up a camp for the night and hope for better conditions tomorrow.
Check out the sign here for the surfies- sounds radioactive?
