Fun with drop-offs

This is a window into the ways that I amuse myself in tropical paradise.

IMG_6575 (1280x853) This picture was taken in the SE corner of Bora Bora. The line between the light and dark colored water shows that there is a steep drop off in the sand. We anchored our dinghy in the light colored water which was about chest deep and amused ourselves for almost an hour walking around on the shelf, walking off the deep end and swimming back to the shelf. We talked about getting out our camping air mattress, inflating it and anchoring it on the shelf for a day but ended up leaving that anchorage to go elsewhere for kiteboarding. I’m still planning to make the mattress day happen.

  1. Super cool! Thanks for posting! In our Cat (3' draft), we've loved sterning up to places like this and just walking off the boat! Can't wait to see the South Pacific one day!

  5. Also jealous! Love the air-mattress idea. That might even be a good enough argument to get one for next time. Does yours have cleats on it?
