It is the last day in April, just don't know where the month has gone.
Life in Savusavu is pretty slow at the moment, not many tourist around, so money earned from that source is not there, not sure if it will improve very much, in the next few months. People are just not travelling like they use to.

There has been only the 1 tourist boat this month, so handcraft sellers are eagerly awaiting the next boat that will be in, on the 14th May, to try & earn some money.

Took the boat out for a run on Tuesday, didn't spend too much time out, as there wasn't anything around, hopefully the Mahi Mahi will be arriving soon.

The weather has been hot during the day, still getting the odd tropical downpour, but fortunately, nice & cool in the evenings.

Easter Week End

Well in my last blog, we had a cyclone alert, thank goodness the cyclone decided to take a more, east south east track which missed us, & headed towards Tonga.

We still got strong winds & fairly high waves in the bay.
Unfortunately, a friend of ours had his boat sink, loosing all his electrical equipment, when the fly bridge broke off,including a brand new GPS, he had installed a little over a month ago.

Weather hasn't been great, lovely days but just about every 2 hours or so, we get heavy rain, & strong winds. That was what happened all through the Easter week end.
Heard there have been fish caught over the week end, some Spanish mackerel, & Mahi mahi, great to have the Mahimahi back.
Have to wait for the Captain to get back, before we can get out.

Cruise Boat In Savusavu Again

4th April.
Most of us were worried that the Pacific Sun would cancel its visit into Savusavu, as we have been experiencing very strong winds, over the last few days, as a low hangs over the Fiji group.

Fortunately, they didn't cancel, & at times the sun came out, but not long enough to make it too humid & unpleasant for the visitors.

Our little street was invaded with the passengers, as they made their way through the stalls looking for gifts to take home.

A few of the younger passengers, couldn't help the inviting water around the Copra Shed, so dived off our pontoon to take a swim.

I think most enjoyed the break in Savusavu, before heading off again, this time for Vanuvatu.
Just before the boat sailed, we received word of a Cyclone alert for Vanua Levu!!
This is going to be fun for us with boats.
