Pictures from the trip to Fiji and from Savusavu.

Some of Susan’s preparation for the trip to Fiji (400nm) – banana cake!


A slightly wet & windy passage to Fiji, but great fun.


We were doing over 8 knots frequently on the last day and sometimes surfing at up to 12 knots!!


Our great twin head-sail set-up, reefed in a bit ready for overnight.


Enchantress safely moored in Savusavu.


A railway line at Lambassa, used for transporting sugar cane. Lambassa is the biggest town on the Vanua Levu Island, the north of the 2 large islands. Susan and Sabine from Chevaldy took the 2 hour bus trip from Savusavu to Lambassa. It was a cultural experience!

 

Sugar Cane on being transported to the mills in Lambassa.


The large & colorful market in Lambassa. Over 50% of the population is of Indian descent, brought in originally to harvest the sugar cane.


The market had a very large selection of food and clothing etc.


Susan enjoyed a very nice 6 FJD vegetarian lunch at the Hare Krishna restaurant.
