Farewell to Fiji

Farewell to Fiji - we slipped our lines at 07:00 Hrs this morning and motored from Suva Bay through the channel under a leaden sky.


As we headed east the sky brightened and we have motored for most of the day. But now the wind has picked up and we have turned the engines off. As we did, we saw a hump in the water!


Yes, it was a whale just lazing around. It wallowed and blew several times and then with a definite flick oh its tail it was gone. Lovely sight.


And now we have Vanuatu in our sights. Hope to arrive on Monday or Tuesday next week.
