Trip To Koro Island

This month seams to have flown, it started off very quite, then the last few weeks have been really busy for us.

As usual when we have trips to Koro the weather seems to pack up, & last week it stayed true to form.

A couple of the trips we had to pick clients up from Dere Bay so we were able to take it slow & ride the waves more gently.

 The last trip we had on Monday was no different, early that morning the wind calmed down & the seas looked good, so we thought it is going to be a good trip across.

About  15 mins out from the lighthouse Terry said here it comes, & boy it sure did, winds gusting up to 25knts, thankfully the clients were settled down below & were able to take the rough conditions.

After putting the clients ashore, engine check, cuppa tea & sandwich, we made our way back.

This way isn't too bad as we travel with the waves but I can say we sure were traveling on  the top some of those waves, it was a lovely sight to see the lighthouse at the entrance to Savusavu Bay knowing we would soon be home.
