June 16 - Nosy Iranja

Pos: S13deg36.452min/ E047deg49.805min. We continued our Nordhavn imitation and motored to Nosy Iranja, anchoring in 33' of sand. The water is crystal clear here, and you can see the bottom at 40'. We went to the village, which turned out to have more people than we thought, and hiked up to the light house. It was locked up, but the surrounding views were great, and the children's school is right next to it. Returning by dinghy, we saw several turtles about 3'-4' in length, and we understand they use the south beach of the nearby island to lay their eggs. This is a rolly anchorage, so we decided to leave the next morning.
