Buru Island, Indonesia

Written by Edward Beckwith on Saturday, May 4, 1940

Started for the small island of Manipa at about 8 and took a course along the 50 miles of shore north of Buru. This was the lee side of the island and there was only a slight roll all day. The north shore was not especially interesting but I think everyone agreed that the anchorage we left inside a small island on the west coast, was the most beautiful and interesting harbor we have been to.

At 9 P.M. Kilkenny picked up the light on Manipa.

Spent the day straightening up the dark room.
