We have been in Malumu Bay(Beqa) for 4 days now enjoying the very protected bay,trying to follow the news around the Tsunami of Tonga/Samoa,and a lost Swedish sailingyacht under way from Fr Polynesia to Palmerston.Nothing new is heard so far on the SSB-net.
Yesterday I went diving with a local divemaster from Lalati Village(working on the resort).The dive was on the reef surrounding Beqa lagoon and we saw loads of sharks,mainly Silver tip sharks,but most impressive the huge  Bullsharks.
In the Lalati village we visited the chief and made Sevu Sevu with him(a very important gesture/tradition where the captain will offer Kawa root to the chief as a gift,to be accepted and welcommed by the local Fiji community).In the afternoon a fisherman came and sold us 3 lobsters,which was a great welcome to interfere in Taritas regular menu.
Today we are leaving for Mamanuca Islands and Musket Cove on the island of Malolo LaiLai,in the western part of Fiji.
