We had an awesome sail back to Savusavu with Jason and Eric, our new neighbors. Despite the impressive lure spread of half a dozen teasers and a variety of lures we didn’t catch fish – we all agree that our spread was just TOO good and the fish were so impressed that they couldn’t even bite. We covered the 58nm during daylight and sailed through the Nasonisoni pass, where the first picture was taken. Thanks again for your help guys! You’re welcome back aboard anytime!
As soon as we dropped the hook off Jacques Cousteau resort, we headed up the hill to enjoy a great evening with Bruce and Jen at their awesome new house! It is incredible and has expansive views over the bay. If anyone is interested in rentals check out Fiji Beach Shacks dot com. It’s the pod and bamboo houses.
We came back to Savusavu for provisions and some business. It’s nice to have amenities again and Alyssa is in heaven with the veggie market and unlimited hot water showers!
In other news, after three long and completely exhausting days in Viti Levu, Bruce and I finally have the KLRs in Savusavu! It took 3 ferry rides, two dirty hotels, a ton of back and forth, mountains of paper pushing and a serous “Fast and Furious-style” bike ride through busy Suva; but we got the bike here and plated! Tomorrow me and Alyssa plan to go for a nice Sunday ride up the hibiscus coast.
Stay tuned for another seriously exciting update to come next week. I don’t want to spoil it just yet.
Cheers from Savusavu!
