Bob and Shan left us on Monday morning.
They will be dearly missed, as friends and master bloggers.
Monday night Diego and Tiphaine (Tif) arrived and we had dinner together.
Tuesday we started ealy with shopping in Nadi. We managed to be back onboard before noon and decided to try and get
out of the Marina straight away.
We filled water and fuel and headed out for Musket Cove. Managed to get there before dark. I showed everybody a bit of the Island Malolo Lailai.
Wednesday we moved on to a small sand island just east of Mana Island.
We did some nice snorkeling there.
In the afternoon we moved in to the lagoon at Mana Island and had time for another snorkel tour before Happy hour.
Thursday morning we had time for a long snorkel tour around the reefs. We saw some nice fishes. Eagle rays, Sting ray and a big Puffer fish.
In the afternoon we had to leave for Lautoka where Alice joined us in the evening.
I had downloaded “Alice, who the fuck is Alice” with wich we greeted her on full volume when she came aboard.
Friday I went to clear out and sent the rest with our remaining Fiji dollars into town to spend them. Mission completed we left for Vanuatu, stopping on the way for
a swim at a small sand island called Vatunaqualau Island.
Next stop, Port Vila, Vanuatu.
