Our position is 17:04:97S 177:16:63W
We are now 5 people onboard. Jørn, Anita and Ragni is visiting from Norway. It is very nice to have a crowded ship.
Yasawa is an island chain west of the main island, Vitu Levu. There are more tourist here than in eastern Fiji. That is no coincidence. The islands are beautiful above and below water, and Fijians are still Fijians. Yesterday we visited a famous pass where the manta rays swim through regularly at high water. Together with our friends on Diva, we waited for a long time. We had all but give up, but there they came. To swim with them was a tremendous experience. The fact that we also captured these magnificent animals on video was a bonus. The film will be on the web once we find an Internet spot.
Well, time is passing fast. That is to be expected with our hard schedule of snorkling, hiking, sailing and sun-downers.
Best wishes to you all from Necessity.
