The weather will turn wetter by the weekend . We have spent the past few days sailing around the islands usually returning to the very protected anchorage 11 by night .Sounds like a chineese menu but it the system used by Mooring´s yacht charter here and avoids the need for unpronouncable Tongan names . Yesterday we met the humpback mother and calf again and this time took photo´s. They seem to be the last of this seasons whales and like us they will be heading south soon . There is heavy rain forcast for this weakend and as it clears probably tuesday of next week we will sail away to the south .
