Rain Rain, Go away

28 September 2007 | Vava'u, Tonga
Morgan & Vanessa
We're tied up to a mooring buoy in anchorage #11 off the island Tapana in the Kingdom of Tonga, waiting for the rain to stop. We've been cruising around the Vava'u group of Tonga for about a week, the weather has been a real mixed bag. Sunny and warm, followed by ugly black rain squalls packing a big wind punch. We sure hope it eases up because we are supposed to go to a traditional feast tonight.

When we first arrived in Tonga we were greeted by 2 pods of Pilot whales and a Humpback...it was quite the welcoming committee. We spent a few nights in the harbor off the town of Neiafu. We have not seen this many cruising boats all in one place since Tahiti. Last Monday we rented dune buggy's with 2 other cruising couples and went on this super fun off road tour.

We have not been able to due as much snorkeling and exploring as we would like due to the weather but, we did visit a few interesting caves a few days ago.

We had an interesting evening a couple nights ago. We were having drinks on a friends boat in anchorage #7 off the island Kapa with another couple when the weather turned really nasty. The host's boat lost anchor hold when the wind shifted and began blowing across the bay. The quick work of the three couples onboard prevented a collision with a nearby boat and we recovered the anchor. We spent about an hour, 6 of us in the cockpit of 34' boat, circling the bay waiting for the rainsquall to pass before resetting the anchor. Mean while, Morgan and another guest onboard were sharing a searchlight trying to determine if our boats were holding in place.
