Bula from Fiji. After a short enjoyable downwind passage we checked in at
the neat little town of Savusavu. From there, we were joined by brother Ian,
partner Sue and baby William. They had caught the overnight ferry from
Lautoka over and arrived excited albeit and little bleary eyed. What
followed was a very enjoyable week reef dodging and bunnyhopping around
first Vanua Levu and then Viti Levu around to Lautoka to again check in.
It was busy with a bub on board but all in all he coped well and it was a
nice break for Ian and Sue. We spent a night at Vuda Point before heading
out to Musket Cove which was much busier than expected but still a nice and
enjoyable place to hang out. Next up more family arrive for more cruising
off Denerau and then we will head to the Yasawa Islands.

See more on our main blog - www.sailblogs.com/member/nika but suffice to say
we are having a blast and still loving the trip. So much so that Sydney
seems a little too close and we are seriously thinking of extending it a
little longer - we shall see how it goes!
