Leaving Taveuni for Kadavu

Some weather is coming through and Sunday is looking like 30 knots and thunderstorms so we are heading out to Ono at the northern tip of Kadavu Island. This is just south of the main island of Viti Levi. It is 140 nautical miles so it will be an overnight trip which is a bit scary seeing it is in Reef strewn Fiji.

More diving

Spent the day doing more diving on Rainbow reef here at Taveuni. What an amazing experience. I'm hooked!
Resort here is very good and run by an Australian couple, Alan and Terry along with 60 Fijian staff. They have a farm attached to the resort and remind you to take it easy!

Diving

I've never dived before so I took the plunge here and did my first dive today.

More catching up

I met the so called mayor of Lomaloma when I was there.
Jacob facilitated all the arrangements in the village and it is a different position than the chief. Interesting that women do not generally play a big part in Fijian society.

Here is another glimpse of the bay of islands.

Taveuni

Just off the coast of this beautiful Fijian island now. I have lots of catching up to do because we have had little or no internet connection.
This one was overlooking the Bay of Islands where we just left this morning.

Green footed Booby hitchhiker

Such a beautiful bird stayed with us for more than a day to get a rest.  so unusual to have seen one. The blue footed ones are famous from the Galapagos islands but this one's feet definitely had a green tinge on them.
