Inviting emerald waters filled with colorful corals a palm fringed white sand beach a pod of whales blowing in the mouth of the bay, this is definitely a nice slice of Fiji.

ThARR she blows! Tim and Bruce donned snorkel gear and jumped off LightSpeed to swim with the whales. LightSpeed drifted silently a few hundred yards away from the whales and the boys were rewarded when a pair of huge humpback whales circled back to check them out.
The next day we snorkeled on the outside of the reef in the afternoon and lounged in gently swaying hammocks. Life is good.

Last night we lit a beach bonfire and then cooked our dinner on the glowing embers as a most spectacular sunset painted the evening sky. Kathy took the underwater flashlight and grabbed a lobster barehanded while swimming back to the boat. This morning we had lobster omelets and watched seven humpback whales frolic in the mouth of the bay. We hoisted Bruce to the top of the mast for some great photos and now we're going snorkelling.
Late in the afternoon we'll set sail for a overnight voyage to Suva.
That's it for now.
