At four o’clock today we leave Port Maurelle for the overnighter to Lifuku in the next group of islands called Ha’apai. After breakfast and a few games we went for a snorkel, off to the left of Beez Neez. Every time we have ever seen these little green chaps, they hide in a flash, today we are going to stalk them until they come out.

En route back, the buoy we were tied to was a nursery for real itsy-bitsies.
