Pulau Lembata, volcanoes everywhere

We cruised up Boling strait at 5am but were too late. The current began rushing towards us and one to two knots was the best we could make even with Villa G's big engine. Fortunately there is a provincial town with a good area to anchor in Leba Leba Bay off the strait.

We have huge volcano mountains in all directions and a couple continue to pour out white smoke.  The anchorage was very windy in the middle of the day, but fortunately for us it was calmed.

The water is only 25 C as it flows in from the Indian ocean.

We plan to depart at 4am to get the right current forward the sea to the north and look for a nice comfortable anchorage.
