Pacific Sun in Savusavu

27th April.

What a beautiful morning it was, for the second visit of Pacific Sun.

She had about 1,800 passengers from Australia, all eager to visit our little town.

The passengers on village tours & other planed events, disembarked the ship first so that the buses could leave.
Then the remaining passengers who just wanted to shop & wonder around, embarked through out the morning.

Going by the comments received from the passengers, I think it is safe to say, everyone enjoyed their visit.

It was hard work trying to get the last group, in the Yacht Club & last minute shoppers, to board the last tender.

There is another visit planned for later in the year, so until then, Thank You for the money spent in our little town, it helped a lot of people.

Savusavu Thunderstorms.

23rd April.

For the last 2 weeks we have been experiencing thunderstorms just about every afternoon.

We awake to beautiful clear cool mornings, but by lunch time the dark clouds have gathered, then the thunder & lightening start, followed by heavy rain.

This clears the air & cools the place down again.
We are coming to the end of the cyclone season, so most of us with boats can relax again for another 6 months.

Koro Island

12th April

We had a trip to Koro Island today, a couple from the USA wanted to look at land, that is for sale on the Island.

It was a lovely trip over & back but there wasn't any birds working, so we didn't put out a line.

Savusavu Fishing

26th March
We took out a young couple from the States, on a half day charter.
First off we got a few skippies, nothing better came up so we left the mount, to look for something bigger.

It wasn't too long before one of the bigger rods went reeling out.
Once in the chair our guest started to bring in the fish, (I should have said tried to bring in the fish).

What little line he managed to bring in, was slowly taken out again.

This went on for 40 hard minutes, the fish got closer to the boat, & we were able to just get a look at it, a big wahoo, then the line snapped, too much strain.

Not long after, we came up to lots of birds working, we got 2 nice bull Mahimahi, about 15kg, & 2 other Mahimahi plus a rainbow runner.

That was a good day out, our guests were happy & we only lost 1 lure.
