After much trouble shooting, and engine bleeding, we now have our new fuel lines and cleaned out tank up and running. We are preparing to leave Suva for the nearby island of Beca June 12. This is one of those countries where we have to check in and out of individual ports. That will take part of today, then on to the markets for provisions and a supply of kava for formal presentation to the village Headmen. We are all looking forward to a quiet anchorage and plenty of beach and water time!

We hopped on a bus for $22 Fijian to Nadi on the other side of the island. We sure enjoyed seeing the land change from rain forest jungle to sugar cane fields and open grassland. This sure is some beautiful country! My sister arrived at Nadi from Fairbanks, AK so I spoiled her at one of the local resorts for a few nights. I found a great deal on line for the Radisson Resort. Talk about luxury! We really enjoyed all the pools and also some excellent fine dining. Meanwhile, Chuck has been sorting out our fuel issues. He found a person with a pump and barrels to remove the fuel. We wound up docking at the fuel dock at high tide, then sit in the mud and muck. The Fuel tank is now empty and squeaky clean. Today Chuck will replace the fuel line with new hose, and hopefully we will be ready to head out to the outer islands in the next day or two for some beach and diving time and less boatwork time! I promised my sister sandy beaches and swimming. She has really enjoyed the sights and cuisine of Suva, but is getting a chance at boatwork in exotic locations, and is now ready for those fabled beaches!
