Journal Entry:
Really didn't get much sleep last night - feels like none. Tried to continue sleeping when the boat powered up and got moving. The engine was just the other side of the hull to me so it was very loud - even so I still think I got more sleep in the two hours we motored than the night before. We stopped to get water and ice and pick up Tim (another member for our crew) in Akuna Bay. Dean and I got left behind on the dock and had to get a ride out on the Tekin. Once we were on the water they decided we couldn't get across so we'd have to stay on the other boat until we moored - we were about four feet apart when this was decided. I didn't have my book, clothes, or any toys so I decided to swim across - and did it despite them trying to get away.

We headed back the way we'd come (towards the end of the peninsula), and stopped for lunch a couple hours later in Yeomans Bays. Several people fished - and caught lots of fish but nothing even close to keeper size. We continued on to Refuge Bay, while the Tekin returned to Akuna to drop off Dean, Adam, and Andy. We found a moorage right off a beautiful little beach with a waterfall. Rowed ashore to play on the beach. The Tekin showed up with its reduced crew (Chris, Stephan and Anne-Marie) and rafted with us. We had a huge combined diner trying to use all the food left.
