We jumped up this morning ready to leave Musket Cove behind, not saying we might pop back, but the wind would have to have turned itself off for that to happen. A young man made himself useful as a reef marker.

Our thirty four mile journey was a little bit of a wiggle around some well known reefs and in some places in quite deep water. Our destination was half way up Waya Island and our cruising notes said that the scenery on the way was the best in Fiji. Camera at the ready then.

Dramatic. The cruising notes were not wrong.

Things round off a little.

Our anchorage for the night was just beyond the catamaran, beside a small resort – originally built by an Austrian.
