The nearest town is Levuka on Ovalau island. It was the capital city of Fiji until 1882. in June 2013 it became a World Heritage Site. The main street has many original wooden buildings reminiscent of the wild west. We are anchored in front of the Tuna cannery so although it is a characterful town, one night is enough. . .
One way and another the window is shifting as a trough of low pressure threatens to get in our way, a slight change of plan is needed and by 3pm we are secured on a mooring next to the beautiful island of Leleuvia. Its so peaceful inside the reef in the shadow of the island, all thoughts of going to Fulaga of slowly slipping away. . .
next day. . ..
David of Gulf Harbour radio gives great weather advice at 7.30am every morning, today might be the last chance we have for a while to head East (as the predominant trade winds are from the east) its about 180nms, a double overnighter to arrive in day light at slack tide, we won't have internet for several weeks.
Its 4pm and we have just set off, theres a full moon tomorrow , always a big bonus on night watches!
