Back in Savusavu

Rainbow over Nananu I Ra
It took us 5 days traversing the north end of Viti Levu and the south end of Vanua Levu, but we made it! 

The weather for the trip was “mostly” fair, except for the last day when a storm decided to blow in early.  

Of course!  So, we pulled up anchor and bounced and rocked our way into Savusavu.  We were lucky though, only got a little wet!
Enjoying Saturday Market

New resort?
So, nice to be back here at the Copra Shed Marina.  It was our first stop in Fiji last September. 

So many of the people that we met last year are still hanging around. 

Squash fundraiser - cold water!
Love being surrounded by familiar faces as soon as you go ashore, plus this place is very social.  There is always something going on.

We have been catching up with the Yachties, visiting our favorite places, and enjoying the cheap eats and drinks again. 
Enjoying my carrot cake
Sunset Selfies
We can eat a great dinner out for less than $10 a couple (excludes beer of course). 

Cheapest we have found in Fiji!

Now, we are waiting for a weather window for our trip to Futuna. 

It will take us 4 days to make the run and we are hoping for a good sail – both directions.

It will sure be nice to have this trip over - it has been a long time since we had to do any overnighters!
