Despite logic and standard dart board quesses from best climatologists on the planet, had 18 - 20 knot quartering breeze for beautiful sleigh ride from lovely and interesting Koro Island into Savusavu on the south coast of Vanua Levu. Moored to a buoy off Copra Shed Marina, supposed center of cruiser activity in these parts. Except for dreary weather it appears to be lovely and meets two fundamental criteria for a great anchorage, fast internet and breakfast. If there's also ice cream may stay awhile.

Following somewhat slow and gentle morning aboard, Jan performed official clear in duties as I was distracted (attention span of a three year old) by cruisers from US & Italy prior to highly desirable and successful search for brekky complete with critical caffeinated beverage. No familiar boats were sighted on subsequent dinghy tour up the creek (no, not that one, plus we have a paddle) so returned home for eagerly anticipated dismantling of clogged shower sump hose. Did anyone mention that Jan has about four feet of beautiful, occasionally red (depends on light) hair? Minimum reflection on upcoming fun induced decision to first take nano-nap after conveying this blabber to an incredulous world.
