Something about nothing

11 October 2012 | Neiafu Harbor, Vavau, Tonga
We're back in civilization again, enjoying internet, good food and all the Tongan amenties available. We really haven't been up to much lately, just hanging out in town or on the boat. We have continued our dinghy fishing adventures, while in the harbor. Last evening, we had several bites but not one of those suckers got hooked; unfortunately, we were left with having macaroni and cheese for dinner. Again, this morning, we jumped into the dinghy for another fishing adventure. We didn't have as many bites as the previous night, however we did catch a fish that was thin and long, around 3 feet long with big teeth. Because of his thiness, we released him back into the water. When we got back on Tanga, we looked the fish up in our book, and discovered we had caught a Snook Fish, belonging to the barracuda family and it said that the fish has canine teeth that will leave a nasty bite. We can definately attest to the size of the teeth.

One thing I forgot to mention in our last post was that we felt and experienced our very first earthquake on the boat. We were anchored off of Vaka Litu, near the Coral Gardens when we felt it. We were both lounging in the cabin area, reading our books when all of a sudden, we felt a rumble feeling come up from below us. We didn't feel it from the sides of the boat; the vibration came from under us. It lasted about 5 seconds. We both looked at each other and said, "was that an earthquake?" We immediately turned on our VHF radio and everyone was reporting that they felt the earthquake also. We later found out, that it was a 4.8 earthquake centered about 50 miles away from where we were located. Since then, 2 other earthquakes have happened, but they have been centered about 100+ miles away and we haven't felt them.

We also wanted to let everyone know that we have posted more pictures in the Tonga Gallery. Check them out when you get a chance. One last thing we wanted to mention, for some reason we are not able to access our private messages that are sent through our website. So, if you want to send us something private, you can email us or you can make a comment and ask that we keep it private. We have to verify all the comments before we approve them to be seen on the website, so if you want it private, we will do so.
