Some of these Bazaruto islands are no more than giant sand dunes. We sailed to one of these sand islands today and flopped around on the dunes. When we felt especially industrious we dug up sand crabs and held races. Best of all, the islands are safe from land mines, something not mentioned in the tourist brochures but still a definite plus.
The crabs here are acrobatic
The crabs are also good eats - very similar to Maryland blue crabs
Seafood that will eat you if you don't eat it.
The fishermen are friendly folk; they'll offer a sardine and a smile.
