Beautiful Savusavu Morning

27th May.
It was such a beautiful morning we couldn't resist not going out on the boat.
It was one of those morning, where you just wanted to keep going, & see where you ended up.

We did put out a line while we cruised around, but there wasn't much around, did manage to get something for lunch, so we were happy.

While heading out towards Koro Island, on the glassy water, something seemed to be bobbing up & down. As we got closer we sighted a pod of Whales swimming out in front of us.

What a beautiful sight to see, but as the boat got closer they went down, then came up as soon as we went away.
It's on a days like this that you really appreciate nature.

Weather In Savusavu

14th May.

The last few days haven't been very nice weather for tourist visiting Savusavu, especially the cruise ship Pacific Sun, visiting our shores from Brisbane Australia.
The morning start off not too bad, cloudy, but at least the rain was holding off.

At dawn all the stall holders started to set up their stalls so as to display their handcraft, & in the hopes of selling something to the visitors.

Just as the first tender pulled into the pontoon, we had our first shower of rain.
Luckily it was only a light shower, only lasting a few minutes, but that was how it continued all day, short showers than sunshine.

Fortunately, this didn't deter the passengers, who did the usual bus & village tours, & a walking through the town, looking for souvenirs to take home.
