It has beeen a hot a winless week . The highlight was sailing with a pod of whales through the sound on Tuesday and a day at anchor off the perfect tropical island . Penny will post the photos on her blog .
We clearer out on wednesday just as the weather broke . This was expected but our visas had expired so we had to leave town for a sheltered anchorage at Mala island to wait for the weather to improvve. Today has seen a gradual improent and the forcast for the next few days is good . We must go tomotrrow since we should not be in the country.
Penny has spent the day cooking so we will be well catered for and tonight we willeat a staek and enjoy a rare bottle of New Zealand wine . We expect to arrie in Fiji at Sevusevu on Monday
