Denarau Island   Leave a comment

We arrived at Denarau Marine in the early afternoon, very nice place with shops and restaurants right on our door step.

Here is the Denarau Yacht club with a great restaurant overlooking the marine.

While waiting for family and friends to join us from New Zealand we managed to get some maintenance and cleaning done on Kapowai ready for party time.

Leaving Suva   2 comments

Finally done with paperwork, we had a few days to ourselves and then it was time to leave Suva and head up the coast. We left at some unearthly hour of the morning but luckily my job was to lift the anchor, and using a very powerful torch, look out for all the fishing boats that were anchored all around us. Once we were into the main passage I got my head back down for a couple of hours.

Awake again I was treated to the Fiji coast.

Sorry its been awhile since I have posted, I’m finding it very hard to get motivated with the lack of energy I have.

Once all the paperwork with customs onboard Kapowai was complete we then had to go ashore and visit three other buildings all in different parts of town, not ideal on a very hot and sticky day, this is why some people don’t bother stopping in some places, the paperwork is crazy.

On this day I was glad I didn’t carry my big camera, hours later after once the admin was done we found an indoor market, it was so nice to get out of the heat, I grabbed a couple of shots with my iPhone.

Really nice limes, great in a G & T.

Fiji   1 comment

After another couple of days of open water we arrived in Fiji, not all were as lucky a us, as you can see below.

The reefs around the island were covered in wrecks, some say due to bad weather, some say due to fraudulent behaviour, who knows.

We found our way in without any problems and soon dropped anchor, we had to sit around for a day waiting for customs/immigration folk to come out, so we got a bit of work done, as did some of the locals.

Others needed to do a bit of work.
