The Sunday Times just published a long story about our cruises and we are thrilled. Here's what Stanley Stewart writes:
"On the way back to the boat, we dropped in on a Moken family who had materialised in the bay. Their boat was festooned with ropes and awnings, baskets and nets, pots and laundry lines. Rows of fish were drying on the roof, a tangle of live lobsters were squirming on a lower deck and what appeared to be a squid was spread-eagled on the foredeck. Women and children scuttled about, cooking dinner, mending nets, bailing water, playing games; while in the stern a great pasha figure sat enthroned, shirtless and aloof as a Buddha. He smiled, granted us a regal wave and sold us half a dozen lobsters. Back on the Scame, we dined on the moonlit deck."
