Sunday, October 28, 2007 - Navandra, Just Another Island Paradise
28 October 2007 | Navadra Island, Fiji
This little island has become one of my favorite places. It is uninhabited, the beaches are clean and beautiful, the water is very clear and the surrounding scenery is breathtaking. The snorkeling is the best I've seen since the Tuamotos and the fishing is acceptable. I could stay here for another few days but I am running out of time.
There are two other boats in the anchorage, an Austrian trimaran skippered by a young singlehander, and a French steel sloop crewed by a young couple and their visiting relatives. Tonight we had a beach barbecue featuring a bluefin trevally I caught this morning and several squid netted by the Austrian fellow. It's the best meal I've had in months!
All else is well onboard. Tomorrow we head back to the marina at Vuda Pt. and begin preparations for the passage to New Zealand.
