Last Sunset In 2007

Just had to add these few pictures, taken from my deck of the last sunset for 2007.

This second pictures shows, the Savusavu airport runway, & Koro Island in the right corner.

Once again A Happy New Years to everyone.

Savusavu Bay

Well, it is the last day of the year, & what a beautiful one it is.

Went out this morning to do some fishing, couldn't ask for a better morning.
First off we had something big on,the line went screaming out, but unfortunately Terry was in the cabin, so couldn't get to it in time.

Once again we lost lures, this time 3, to big bronze whaler sharks, but managed to bring in a couple of yellow fin.

There were so many birds out on the water today, just had to take pictures of them, as they flew behind the boat, playing with the lures.

A Happy New Years to you all.

Back Home

23rd December.

Well Terry is back after a short break in New Zealand, so was able to take the boat out for a run.
There was a lot of growth on the hull, as she has been sitting on the mooring for a while.
It doesn't take long in this climate.

The weather is fine in the mornings, but by lunch time, we are getting heavy tropical showers, so it's best to get out early .
All this rain hopefully, is cooling the waters down so as to prevent another cyclone building.
A Merry Christmas to all from Terry & Trevina.

Savusavu Visitors

14th December.

Terry is away visiting family, on a well deserved break.

As it worked out,we have had a week of beautiful calm sunny days.

I think Cyclone Daman cleared the air, for a while at least.

Here are a few pictures, taken earlier of visitors to Savusavu from Australia, who we took out on one of our fishing charters.

After Cyclone Daman

9th December

Well the last couple of weeks have brought disappointment and relief to the little Tourist town.
Disappointment because we were expecting our biggest ever tourist boat, with close to 200 passengers. This was canceled two days before they were due to arrive. They had experienced bad weather and changed their route, missing out on Savusavu.

Then along came Cyclone Daman, the cyclone no one thought would turn into anything. We must all thank whoever was looking out for us that night, because we know there wouldn't have been much left standing if it had gone through on the predicted path.

This morning was one of the nicest sunrise, a pleasure to see after the last few days of worry.
This is just the start of the cyclone season and this year it has started with a bang.
