DEPARTURE: Massawa, Eritrea

Cleared formalities on board with helpful and friendly Awat from Immigration. We have our Port Clearance and were thanked by Port Control for visiting and wished Bon voyage. We are really glad we visited Eritrea. Weather is wind still, glassy seas and overcast. Masses of seaweed everywhere, not what you want to sea when motoring.

The Red Sea is full of tuna

Caught another small Mackerel Tuna on the troll, third one in 4 days. We made a huge red Thai curry couple of days ago with about two thirds of the first two, enough for three meals. Planning a pile of tuna-avocado nori rolls for tonight using the avo’s from the Djibouti fresh market.
