I had a glass of wine at my lips as I read that. James, it's not nice to make a lady snort wine.

Don't know where you are now, but Rapa Nui, or Easter Island, is quite fascinating. Of course there is no all weather anchorage, just have to keep moving round the island. Solomons had some of the best diving, but recent news on the locals needs to be looked into. Rodriguis Island in the Indian is quite nice and maybe not so visited, then there's Zanzibar, which if you can still get in, has the greatest Dhows in the world plus an old city made from clay and of course the slave cells from last century. If you like tiny wee spots, there's Kingman Reef in the Line Islands, very primitive and mega sharks, so to for Palmyra, but I think we can't go there anymore. But in the Atlantic about 200 miles off Colombia lies Malpelo. Just a rock, maybe 1000' high, you can climb it, filled with gannets and their young. And in the Coral Sea, a few weeks at Mellish Reef filled with Nature is grand, good protection in the SE. Personally our present favorite is Tasmania, the west coast. Macquarie Harbour, go up the Gordon River into rainforest for 40 miles. Then down on the SW corner is Port Davey. Not really a port, no-one there, just button grass and mountains of granite. For more ideas on Australian out of the way spots, see our website. Two's a Crew

Yep. Torres Strait is nice and places up North from there.

Russia could be fine too - but it looks mostly bloody cold clime.
