|Matautu Bay |
It is a big bay with lots of reef and coral, plus great sand beaches. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to explore more than the bay and the local villages due to our dinghy engine issues - rats.
We were lucky and our boat neighbors on Mazu and Mystic Rhythm were here with us for awhile and would take us into the Savaii Lagoon Resort. A very nice place right on the beach with good food, cold beer, and internet. The necessities!

We have to wait for high tide so that we can pass over the reef, plus fighting the current and the wind. It only takes us about 20 minutes, but it sure seems longer. Good thing Doug is a strong paddler cause I keep picturing us floating out to the open ocean - yikes!

Next, we hope to take an all day tour of Savaii (if the weather improves). Plus, we need to do a little provisioning before we start sailing to Fiji - our final destination.
Hard to believe it has been over 3 months since we left Hawaii - our journey is almost over!
