I am not sure if it's because we remain becalmed with virtually no breeze and little current in the ocean or because the temperatures are getting hotter but the last two evenings we have seen two fantastic and utterly different sunsets.

One from the Dhoni as we sailed the atoll islands changed colours all the time with beautiful shades of pink and coral reflecting on the clouds and the surface of the ocean. As the sun sank we saw incredible silhouettes of islands.

Yesterday the cloud seemed to auger for a limited sunset but in the last 10 minutes we saw incredible colours emerge from behind the clouds and on to the ocean. It was simply stunning. We sat on the deck and watched one painting after another unfold - brilliant!
