We are still enjoying ourselves and chillin' out in Tonga. We have been entertained at various Bars and Restaurants and have even been to the "Baby Grand" Theatre - the only live Theatre in the entire Kingdom of Tonga...
We had a really fun week in the Vava'u Regatta. We managed to pick up a 5th (out of 5) and a 19th (out of 20) in the sailing races but, in the fun events, Roger made it through to the third round of finding the "Yachtie with the least hair". Luckily, a bunch of "Uncle Albert" lookalikes appeared when needed !!! Vicki, on the other hand, got down to the last 5 in the "most suntanned Lady" competition only to be beaten by an Indonesian Lady - how unfair is that !!!! All we really needed was a competition for the boat with the 2 most badly behaved Dogs on board and we would have won !!!!
The Humpback Whales haven't yet migrated back to Antarctica and we spent a fantastic day last week doing the "Tourist thing" and swimming / snorkelling with a Mum and her Calf which was just amazing. Photos will be on the main Blog after we arrive in NZ and have decent wifi.
Not long now until our last leg to NZ. Aiming to leave Tonga around the middle of November.
