Sunrise in Savusavu

Got up this morning to a beautiful sunrise, lovely view from my deck.

Watched the final of the Rugby world cup last night, we were sitting on the edge of our seats for the last 10 mins, wishing the All Blacks would win, & yes they did by a margin of 1, final score 8/7.

Winds are still fairly strong & looking out across the waters, there are a few large white caps to be seen, so we won't be venturing out just yet.

There are so many bananas getting ripe at the moment, running out of things to do with them, Terry had to strap a bunch to his back as it was so big to carry up.

Pineapples are getting bigger so it won't be long before we are able to pick them also.

Savusavu's Latest Visitors

The visiting yachts into Savusavu are getting few & far between, most have left Fiji, as we come into Cyclone season.

There have been a couple come in this month to get water & stores before heading away.

Weather has been really hot in the mornings with rain showers in the afternoon to cool it down.

Dawn Princess In Savusavu

Luckily it is a lovely day in Savusavu to welcome Dawn Princess & all her passengers into Savusavu, hope they all have a wonderful day.

After all the rain we have been having, everyone is thankful for the nice clear day.

It was a very busy early morning in town with all the shop venders setting up stalls along the main road outside the Copra Shed Marina.

All the passengers disembark at the Marina, so everyone wants the best position.

There was a little light entertainment this morning as the band did a march through town on their way to the park.

They stopped just outside the Marina to do a few items for the visitors, that was most entertaining, & a pleasant break for the tourist.

Fiji Day In Savusavu

Celebrations are being held all round Fiji this weekend for Fiji Day, it was once called Cession Day week end, in remembrances of when Fiji was ceded to Great Britain.

When Fiji gained Independence in 1970 it was renamed Fiji Day.

There were many things organised in Savusavu over this long weekend, the major one being. The Savusavu Outrigger Cup computation.

Paddlers from around Fiji descended on Savusavu for the four day computation.

Unfortunately the weather hasn't been the best, we have had a lot of rain, & especially today, it started off as a beautiful morning, but by midday heavy rain & strong winds have been experienced all over.

The Paddlers hadn't started races when we passed Daku Resort, on the way back to the Copra Shed, people & outriggers were all set up on the beach in front of the resort.

Caught a nice 17kg Wahoo this morning before the weather changed.
