Vuda for a Few More days

29 June 2014 | Vuda Point Marina, Fiji
We are pretty much done with our maintenance projects, and were just about to leave when we did notice a stinky smell when we ran the engine. An investigation revealed that our stainless exhaust elbow had a crack. So, a couple more days for extraction, re-welding, and re-install, and we can go.

Meanwhile, we attended "A Day at the Races" Fiji style. The marina manager arranged a free bus to haul a number of us to the race park, gave a bottle of Bundaberg Reserve, Aussie rum to the best dressed participant, and just showed us a great time. The race was run by Fijians for Fijians although many ex-pats and a few yachties attended. The riders used no saddle, no shoes, no helmet, and rode like the wind on very spirited (nearly out of control) horses. So, it was quite exciting, and Elisabeth being a horse girl was very at home.

After the race the woman who won the rum shared it with the gang ensuring that we all were a bit slow moving the next morning. So, it is still great fun.

In a few days, we will set sail for Blue Lagoon, and other fun places. Oh, by the way, we have posted a new Fiji album, with many race photos, as well as a Tuvalu album, so please....have a look!

Lastly, we have been immortalized at Vuda. Our old California flag was retired, autographed by us, and hung in honor at the Vuda Sunset Bar! Thank you Vuda Point marina. Vinaka!

Best Always, Rod and Elisabeth,
Your Rock and Roll Argonauts
