Time to get moving again!

Shopping for parts
We made the most of our delay in Port Denarau – as always.

Doug hired All Engineering to fix and modify our generator, plus they provided the muscle to move it. Every seems to be working just fine so far.
Lots of muscle
He also rebuilt our Windlass, so no more pulling up the anchor and chain by hand – yeah!

Fire Dancers at Cardo's
Plus, we have had some fun – of course. 

Cardo’s (our favorite place at Denarau) has had some great entertainment this week. 

Polynesian and Fire dancers have Wow’d the crowds, plus lots of life music.
What a voice!
My favorite, this lady. 

She can really sing – a beautiful bluesy voice!  Too bad she doesn’t sing at Cardo’s more often.
Only 5 stitches Mom!

Also, a little drama to go along with the fun. 

I was helping our boat neighbors back out of their slip and things went bad quickly. 

They were going all over the place and I tried to help, but got hurt in the process.  It was pretty ugly, but only took 5 stitches to put me back together again.

Lesson:  Never put your hand between an anchor and a piling!
Oldies, but Cuties

Now, time to head north so that we can do our quick trip to the French island of Futuna (Fiji Customs requirements).

We should be back in plenty of time to join in on the fun at the Musket Cove Regatta in September!

Glad to hear your injury was 'fixable' and required only five stitches. Have a safe journey and we'll be tagging along via your blog posts. We are heading to Kauai in a couple of weeks -- need a shot of the Pacific to recuperate from our Greek travels this summer. ;-)
