Another day in sunny Gulewa villiage on the north side of Misima Island. The day started with a visit to the local elementary school, complete with traditional dancing (the canoe dance - yay!). Graham and Cate went on an extended tour of the village with Terry which included sago making and a visit to the women's refuge. Terry then climbed to the tallest cocoanut tree unaided to secure about twenty drinking nuts.
In the afternoon he took us to the best snorkelling spots, and the evening ended with a BBQ and sing-sing on the beach. The massive ribs on the bone were awesome, being the first of the gifts from Investigator.
Tomorrow we will sail around to panapompom to clear out, before heading to windward along the Calvados Chain to secure a better wind angle to Cairns,
