Bear took it upon himself to spuddle over to the resort and book us in for the lovo and meke tonight. Mmm, better shower and dress up then. We had just parked Baby Beez on the beach when we met Paws Time, they stayed at six feet away from the ‘diseased ones’, funny how word has gone round the anchorage. Steve and Chris walked down from Happy Hour and Steve was brave enough to step up for a hug, my first contact with anyone in eight days. We think we will stay the full two weeks then re-enter the world. We had a drink at the resort bar and were given a table on the edge, wonderful, word has got here too. We were very impressed by the spread, Bear tucked in to raw fish starter, I had sweetcorn, beetroot and salad. Mains was pork, lamb, chicken, coral cod, vegetable curry, sweet potato, ordinary potato, mixed root vegetables, cassava, taro and an amazing rice dish. One happy and ‘getting better Bear’. For afters there was banana custard and then the meke was put on by the entertainment group from the island opposite. This big group played their own instruments, sang beautifully and danced.
ALL IN ALL THOROUGHLY ENJOYABLE
A FANTASTIC EVENING
