Savusavu Harbour Cruise

25th November.

It looked like we were going to get a thunder storm, the sky started to take on a more gray colour, & we heard a crack of thunder.

As we were all at the boat, we decided to carry on with our harbour cruise.

A half hour into the cruise, the dark clouds cleared & the sun came out. So it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon.

To make it more memorable for the couple, we came across a school of Dolphins. They jumped & played around the boat for some time.

The Lady, never seen Dolphins before, so was most impressed with the Dolphin display.

Cruise Boat Returns To Savusavu

21st November

The cruise ship returned to Savusavu, with a new lot of passengers.

The ship had sailed on to Lautoka, where passengers disembarked, and new passengers, boarded for the return trip to Savusavu.

Passengers disembarked at the Copra Shed Marina, where they were greeted by women with flowers, & men playing guitars & singing Fijian songs.

Some passengers boarded buses to go on tours, while others walked around our little town to look at shops, & enjoy our tropical setting.

Cruise Boat In Savusavu

15th November.

There was a lot of excitement in our little town today.

We had a visit from a Cruise ship.

It wasn't one of the large ships, 400 passengers on board, but large enough for the town to handle.

Savusavu Reefs

10th November 2007

The weather this week has been fantastic.
Clear blue skies, crystal clear waters, & calm seas.

Here are a few pictures, taken on one of these days, as we went along the reef, on our way home.

Dolphins & Searov

28th October.

It was another beautiful morning when we departed the Copra Shed marina, at 6.30. with a young couple from Britain.
We headed straight out to the usual place where we do most of our fishing, there were birds working, so we got the fishing gear out.

It wasn't too long before we had our first strike it looked like a yellow fine tuna, just as it was brought in there was a big splash & the line went reeling out. Yes a big bronze whaler shark had taken the fish.
After a good work out,( these sharks do put up a fight) the line snapped & we lost yet another lure to sharks.

We moved away for a while, because once sharks are around, there isn't any way we are able to bring fish in, before the sharks attack.

Our day was made, we came across a school of Dolphins, these are such beautiful creatures, they were diving under the boat, alongside, in front of the boat, just all over. I was sorry I missed the shot, of one Dolphin leaping right out of the water, just by the boat.
