Making way to the LAU

LOCATION: Naselesele Point, Taveuni
POSITION: 16 40.940S 179 52.437W
NEXT DEST: Lau Group

It feels SO good to get out of the 'city'! We finally left Savusavu on
the 16th for Fawn Harbor (a six hour day sail away). We were the ONLY
boat in the bay and loving it! A short walk from the harbor was Bagasua
Village, where we enjoyed meeting a number of the natives.

On Saturday, the 18th, one of our good friends, Flipper, joined us. It
was quite the trip for him, first flying from LA to Nadi then two small
island hopper flights (between Nadi and Suva and then Suva to Savusavu).
After that he had to find the right bus for a two hour ride on unpaved
roads out to the village! And if you can believe it, it all went off
without a hitch, Flipper arrived right on time!

We spent Sunday in the village enjoying the gracious hospitality of the
locals. Monday we made our way to Naselesele Point just off Taveuni
Island. What an unbelievable anchorage, we are surrounded by corals
heads (YIKES), sitting in turqoise water, with tiny islands all around.
Again we are the only boat, and the serenity and peacefullness engulf
us! It feels so good to be cruising again!

We will continue our day hops making our way to the LAU group (probably
getting there by the 22nd or 23rd).
