After over a month of fun, the time sadly arrived for us to disembark our friend Steve and return him to his beautiful and talented wife, Margo.
We rented a car the afternoon before Steve’s departure and set out for a tour of Vanua Levu. While straying from our intended destination (i.e. getting lost) I found my first piece of Fijian graffiti about a 1/2 an hour after the paved road ended.
Luckily, we did not get lost the next day when we took Steve to the Labasa Airport where he caught the first of three flights that returned him home after 36 hours of travel.
Since Steve’s departure, we have spent our time among the beautiful people of Savusavu, readying Amandla for her visit to the Lau Group, and provisioning extra supplies for trading, gift giving and for performing Sevusevu when we visit there.
We were even treated to a surprisingly awesome performance by the USNS Mercy’s Pacific Partnership Band. The USNS Mercy is a Navy Hospital Ship currently providing medical services and supplies in Fiji as part of Pacific Partnership 2015.
It is anchors up for SY Amandla tomorrow. While we will miss colorful Savusavu, we are so looking forward to venturing into the remote Lau.
