Moondance finally escaped the Fiji Triangle (Denarau, Musket Cove, Vuda Point) and started trekking north.
Happily, we are traveling with our good mates Jude and Grant on s/v Blinder - such a treat and so much laughter.
|Jude Skurfing and giggling!|
Great place for an overnighter.
Then continued on to Nananu-i-Cake with hopes of a chance for kitesurfing lessons.
The wind always blows and gusts around here!
Lessons didn't work out, but we still had a great time sharing sundowners, playing cards, and exploring with Blinder and new friends on Sharpe Focus - so much laughter.
|Late night arrival|
Next, we all headed out for the island of Makogai.
|Capt Doug adventuring in our new dinghy|
Blinder was having engine issues and we followed.
They had an amazing sail back to our anchorage. We motor/sailed and came in just before dark - whew.
|Jude making smiles!|
Which included a provisioning run to Rakiraki.

We were out of beer - hah!
And fresh fruit and veggies would be a nice treat too.
|Enjoying drinks at Safari Lodge|
Much easier than taking our own dinghies - we would have been soaked.
|Cool path to the water|
|Walkabout around Nananu|
It was a good route from Nananu-i-Ra to Naisonisoni pass, but a very long bumpy day.
|Our route - gotta pay attention|
Thanks to our friends on Tanga for sharing the route!

Now we are back in lovely Savusavu.
It is good to be back visiting all of our favorite places and catching up with the Yachties.
Savusavu has changed a lot since Cyclone Winston blew thru in February, but I will talk more about that later..
Tomorrow, we are flying to Suvu for a few days for a mini-vacation.
Then off to the islands we go. Hoping to see Taveuni, Rabi, Bud's Reef, etc.
We need to get moving again!
