Turtle time! But then it's always time for turtles here as the Ambohibe Turtle Reserve is just off our beach. Sightings have been really good this week which makes our guests (and us) very happy. Fancy joining us and getting this close? #turtlethursday#turtle
L'aspetto che più mi piace della felicità è che è duplicabile, se riesci a rinnovare dentro di te la memoria di un momento felice, quell'evento ha ancora un'eco di felicità. La felicità è un istante, l'accensione di un fiammifero che in quei pochi secondi di luce ti permette però di vedere a lungo. Grazie @charlotteintimo per il mio bellissimo costume 👙.. #nosysakatia#nosybe
The mermaids last full day in #madagascar Tomorrow we go to #hellville to shop and provision for the return trip. Hopefully our long awaited parts arrive in the afternoon. Saturday we fit them, fill up with fresh water and pack the boat. We have a beach massage scheduled for the end of the day. Sunday we do 300 litres of diesel and an airport trip to drop off @adelesherlock and @rosie.sherlock05 and pick up my crew. Monday I clear out and point the bows of Amarula south. My heart is heavy.
I thought I’d have so much time on the yacht to draw and be creative, but sadly not. This is as close as I’ve come to being creative so I’ve just had to post some photos. . . Back in my studio on Tuesday morning 💙 #underwaterphotography
I know that on Monday morning I will be wearing a polar jacket, so I have been in the warm water as much as possible. I’m trying to imagine lighting the fire place and hearing the Cape Town drizzle. Can’t wait to see our boys and coffee dates with friends 🌸
The #sugarscoop on a #catamaran is an important piece of design. Not only is it integral in the hull design but it is also where you get onto and off one’s vessel. It is used as a temporary dock for the tender, an outdoor shower spot, fish landing area (if you are lucky enough to catch one) and most importantly it is one of the best places to use when jumping into the Here @rosie.sherlock05 gets ready to dive into the blue.

Les transats et l’ambiance zen du sakatia lodge me manque déjà ! Si vous avez la chance d’aller un jour à nosy bé n’oubliez pas de passer une journée ou plus à nosy sakatia, c’est hyper reposant et vous aurez peut être en prime l’occasion de nager avec des tortues. De mon côté la reprise se fait sur les chapeaux de roue, mais c’est aussi du pur bonheur ! C’est là que l’on prend conscience de l’importance d’aimer son métier et d’être passionnée ! J’essaie de vous retrouver en story prochainement dès que j’aurai retrouvé mon rythme de croisière. Bonne ...
Another Coconut Punch please🥥Best drink ever! Although I’m sure they didn’t put any alcohol in mine. I had 6 in a row which, if it did have alcohol, would have guaranteed me a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records given my tolerance level🥃 #bottomsup#theydefthoughtiwasunderage
We are in Sakatia and the water is so calm and clear. The turtles keep popping up, they sound just like a diver surfacing. I convinced my model to come for a early morning swim, she has been most compliant 😊 I’m loving the hand me down old broken go pro from @sherlockfpv . . . my kids have the best toys #sailing#sailing
Our day today. . . A very stinky walk to the market. A very bumpy ride back to the boat. Rosie’s school work, I baked bread and the captain got us safely to another anchorage 💙 #sailing#sailingwithkids
Madagascar’s full of colour✨ The locals live in colour, happy to welcome people, although it’s generally not too full of tourists. Huge celebrations or ‘nights out’ are held on Friday & Sunday not only on the main islands but also the smaller ones. This was at our first stop, Nosy Sakatia. So beautiful, safe & the most amazing food!🏝 Definitely recommend! . . . #madagascar#malagasy
