A quiet day - we moved down to the Blue lagoon (every country seems to have one around the Pacific). The other "kids boats" have joined us and there are seven other yachts in the anchorage. This evening we had sundowners on the beach with a sing a long - Lynne off "Windflower" playing the guitar and Sharon off "Larabeck" playig the violin. She happens to be a Professor of Music at a US University on a sabbattical. We lit a fire and the kids all plyed together on the beach.
The wind is now a 10 amp breeze, so at last the wind generator with its new blades is carrying the load of the boat - nice not to have to run the engine to charge the batteries for a change.
Tomorrow we will probably move bac up to Port Maurelle, which has become a bit of a favourite of ours. n Monday we need toreturn to Nieafu in preparation for the next leg of the rally.
Until tomorrow, TTFN
