We are anchored this evening in Matauto Bay , Savaii . We share the anchorage off a small samoan village with one other yacht. Calm and protect5ed by a reef with white sand and palm trees.
Yesterday our preparations  for departing Apia were delayed a little by and earthquake nearby which we felt and then a tsunami alert . This is first first time that we have faced the question of what to do in the event. That is to leave the boat and head for high ground or put to sea . In the event we did nothing and there was no Tsunami .
