We have moved on
Well in a fit of madness we've finally moved from Yalobi bay. We were in a rut. The only question each morning was whether we'd have a coffee before or after the first swim of the day.
We've motored 10 miles south to Navadra Island (caught a fish along the way which has been turned into a red curry). It is uninhabited, has rich coral and is filled with mango and coconut trees. We snorkeled ashore and the lee side of the island was just stunning - the picture postcard version of Fiji.
The anchorage is getting a lot of swell. I even gave up the hammock because it was trying to hurl me into the sea. My prediction - not much sleep tonight.
We are rolling in a very beautiful spot. This bay is open to the North and the swell keeps creeping around the sides to make this a bit uncomfortable anchorage, but we have no wind so we are safe. We met another yachtie that told us about this place and its great snorkeling spot, and I must agree that the coral garden is good. Yalobi bay was great and we spent part of the day yesterday hanging out at the school watching the kids play. We will leave tomorrow to go to either Lautoka or Musket Cove to get water and fuel, and start getting us ready for the passage.
