It sleeps 8 with a big kitchen and living area, a pool, and a great view of the Mamanuca Islands.
|Goofy Games, but so fun|
Pam and Annette kept us entertained by organizing daily games, plus a scavenger hunt.

Great competition with lots of laughing and celebrating.
We were definitely entertained!

There were also two very successful fishing trips.
|Big Fish - way to go Gail and Annette|
Gail and Annette scored big the first day out.

|Nice form George!|
Fun snorkeling and drinks and diving from the top.
|Great snorkeling at Castaway Wall|
Then, Koroi took us on a drift snorkel along Castaway Wall.
Lots of small aquarium fish, colorful coral, and no sharks (yeah).
|Drinking Blue Drinks at Castaway|
It was pretty amazing.
|Fun Fun Fun boat day|
It is located on the island of Qalito.
|George ready to go|
Good food and a gorgeous view, but lots of rules about where you could eat - interesting!
|Checking out the Funky Fish resort|
Funky is a cute little backpackers resort that always take great care of the Yachties.
|Josie and Sevu working on the lovo|
What a wonderful day!
|Gail and Mark - big smiles!|
Josie, from the Island Bar, volunteered her husband, Sevu, to make a lovo for us - on his day off!
|Sevu and Annette making Palusami's|
|Sevu and Walter weaving baskets|
|Palusami's cooking on the Lovo|
Lots of fresh coconut milk, combined with onions, herbs, and spices wrapped up in Dalo leaves.
|Baskets of food - perfect|
Lots of work, but they tasted sooooo good.
Then Sevu and Walter weaved baskets to hold the marinated chickens.
And everything was layered onto the hot rocks and covered with palm leaves and a tarp.
One hour later, the lovo was done and our baskets filled with the feast.
What a wonderful experience!
|Exploring at the Sand Bar|
We also visited the Sand Bar twice to do some beachcombing and snorkeling.
|Blue Starfish - amazing|
You can find lots of Sand Dollars and other shells, plus wade around checking out the star fish and the colorful aquarium fish.
|Kayaking around Musket Cove|
Loved the small little flounders (maybe).
You could only see their eyes and a puff a sand when they swam around - pretty cool.
|George and the Pool Girls|
|Doug and Mark sizzling sausages|
Whew - 10 days went by so fast and we were very sorry to see our company leave, but know that we will see them all again - soon!
