|So the low is flooding Vanu Levu. Last night we had thunder, lightning and more of a waterfall than rain...|
Our dinghy engine gave up and this morning (because I forgot to close the air intake to the tank yesterday!)
Ellinor and Erika were up early to go to yoga.
As they were ready to go the dinghy was full of water up to the rim.
They did not give up, worked hard to get rid of most of the water and rowed in .
I have been working on technical stuff, changing oil in the transmission.
Changing from fluorescent tubes to halogen in the galley.
Putting new door stops on all doors, an important safety issue. The old ones were worn out.
We got a package from Hallberg Rassys Parts department (they are the best!!) with goodies to be changed on board.
Checking all waterfilters as the bay is full of rainwater and debris.
So on and so forth, but Salsa is in the best condition ever.
And as the dinghy does not work I got a ride with Steve on Lady Carolina to go ashore and fill up propane.
After that I took the kayak and went to the market to buy food. And was it raining again when I came back?
Ellinor took a picture when I approached. This is the best one...
