Back to the Islands - yeah!

We spent almost a week at the Port Denarau marina - time flew!

Surrounded by Super Yachts
Moondance was in the neighborhood where all of the super yachts are docked.

Helicopters, crews with matching uniforms, and lots of money being spent.

Kind of like us - but different!

The fast boat!
We like this place.

Several yacht shops, markets, and lots of dining.

We spent the time working very hard - at least very hard for us!  Doug overhauled the generator, put in a fancy automatic flush toilet (fancy), and lots of other projects.

I stayed out of the way and spent my hours polishing Moondance's hull.  It was nasty!

Now, we are back at Musket Cove hanging out with our friends and playing in the water.

We even got to sail here - what a treat.  Cruisers don't get to do much day sailing.

We will stay a few days and then head for the outer islands.

Roast pig - going to have to try it
Sounds like our first stop will be the island of Naviti.

Famous for the big Manta Rays that feed in the bay this time of year - oh my.  Hope I get some get some good pictures and don't have a heart attack!

PS:  Megan these beautiful island pictures are for you!

All that and roast pig to boot! How does it get better than that? Oh, I know, swimming with giant mantas might do it.

As always the pictures are gorgeous- my favorite is the picture of Moondance!
Moondance's crew could totally wear matching uniforms. It would be cheaper than outfitting an entire yacht's crew too.
Can't wait to see where you end up next!
