Fishing Boat at Savusavu Wharf

The weather here is Savusavu has been really lovely, hot sunny days & cool nights, haven't had much rain lately so for the likes of us that get our water supply from our roof catchment, are getting a little worried.

Were talking to a friend that operates a Game Fishing charter business on Viti Levu, apparently they are facing the same problem as us, lack of fish being caught on charters, thank goodness it isn't just us in Savusavu that are having this problem.

We ventured out the other day to see if the fish had returned, managed to get 4 small yellowfin tuna & 1 skippy,
Nothing really was working again, we were just fortunate to be in the spot when the yellowfin surfaced.

On the way in Tui Tai was anchored out in front of Cousteau, for a snorkel before they left for their week away cruising the Islands.
Anchored at Savusavu main wharf, was one of the fishing boats that spend time at the fishing spots taking Tuna.

Yachts is Savusavu

It is that time of year again, when the Yachts from all over the world start arriving into Savusavu for the start of the Yachting season.

Most come from New Zealand, & Australia, but many a time there has been ones from much further away.

On my way over on Pacific Sun from Nadi, I saw a lot of development from the plane as we flew out of Nadi, this is a good sign, shows people are still investing here.

It is a long week end in Fiji, as we celebrate the Queens Birthday, there is a big soccer tournament on in Viti Levu, so Savusavu if very quiet today.

The sun is shinning & a gentle breeze is blowing so what more can one ask for, a beautiful day in Paradise.

New Zealand Visit

Have come back from a short visit to New Zealand, visiting Family.

The day I flew in was a beautiful clear morning, so was able to get a few shots of the shore line as the plane flew along the coast on the way to the airport.

Luckily the weather was good the first week. so was able to get about & look at shops especially the supermarkets, something I have to do at least once a year, after living in Savusavu, just to look at the choice of foods on offer!

We have been out a couple of times since I have been back, but the fishing hasn't been at all good.

The reports coming in haven't been good either, sure hope it picks up soon.

We have been wondering if all the earthquakes that have been happening in the area are having a effect on the fish, or if the current lines that brought the fish to us have changed after the big one in Japan??
