At Sea to Borneo, 5 July 1893

At 5 o’clock in the morning we caught sight of Celebes and the Selayar islands. An hour later we passed through the Strait of Selayar that separates the elongated Selayar island from the Southern tip of Celebes. In the afternoon we drove by the lighthouse of Taka Reva at a distance of eight sea miles.

The weather had again turned erratic. During the day it was clear but towards evening and during the night there were heavy rainstorms. The sea remained smooth and calm.
