We spent the day at anchor . Very hot and sunny . Took a walk with two young ladies , their dog and pig through the bush to see the reef and beautiful white sand beach on the Pacific side . Gathered grapefruit , nuts and coconut plants . Thi morning it rained heavilly as it does in the tropics  . We had offered togive thefamilly a ride to Nieafu to shop . They were dressed in sunday best and got soaked before we set off .We are  w at the mooring off Nieafu and will reprovision in the mring as well as sending out access papers to Fiji customs .
