This morning we were on the way early to watch  ´Trooping the Colour ´ Samoa style . Every morning the Samoan polioce band march from their barracks to the government offices to raise the national flag , Splendid ; very British .
Then the market and the fish market . Fish all shapes and colours ; vivid blues and yellows . Then it got hot so collect the washing from the laundry and back to the marina . New sandalls causing blisters so a chill out afternoon .
Tomorrrow it is the historic waterfront trail and me in my ´lava lava ´dress ,
