As time was getting short I had to get on and didn't stop again till after I passed Scarborough. Got "motor essence" there and went on around the bay. The beaches I passed in the morning were washed clean and nothing could be found there. But now in this bay were several places where there was a hole in the coral reef and a very large amount of seaweed was washed up on fine wide beaches.

Transcription Notes:
@siobhanleachman - I only use the [[start page]] and [[end page]] for showing when moving from one pg to next when image has two pages. See instructions blue tab to the right for further info.

Where there is an insertion I follow what TC has previously recommended (they are in the process of updating instructions) and use [[insertion]] text [[/insertion]]. Hope this helps.
