Village Visit

Wednesday August 24th 2022 Once again back in a beautiful bay at Waya Island. It’s early morning and I’m watching the sunrise, casting its deep orange glow across a clear brightening sky; another beautiful dawn promises. As the sun rose gently over the island, the highest rocky peaks were illuminated, casting shadows over the lush […]

Paradise Cove Resort

It was only thanks to that obnoxious, bad tempered little Frenchman, that we had the misfortune to encounter in Manta Ray Bay, that we found this idyllic place. I can’t believe, we’ve been to Manta Ray Bay so many times, over so many years, and we never knew this lovely spot existed, it’s literally just […]

Weird Things happening on a Full Moon

Wednesday 13th July 2022 I’ve been loving this anchorage, flat, calm water with plenty of breeze to cool you down, beautiful views all around and new beaches to explore. At dusk each night the bats (Flying Foxes) on the Island take flight in their thousands, its jaw dropping to watch; last night it was a […]

Shark Infested Waters

Friday 8th July 2022 We said our goodbye’s to Paul and Trish, and headed over to Nevadra. This is in such a beautiful group of little islands, just a couple of hours sail from Musket Cove. More often than not it proves to be a very rolly anchorage, and any stay there really needs to […]

Lunchtime Laughter

Thursday 7th July 2022 We’re still all at Musket Cove; Paul and Trish check out tomorrow, to continue their sojourn with the third Oyster World Rally. Their next stop New Caledonia, and then on to Australia, while we remain here in the beautiful Islands of Fiji. We planned another (our last together for a while) […]

Denarau Marina, Thank you!

Friday 1st July 2022 Today, Bob and I will have been married for 44 years, quite an achievement these days I think, particularly since we’re still happy together. We were alongside in Denarau Marina (my favorite marina in Fiji), to get our freezer fixed, and to hand over the torn sail to the sailmakers. We […]

Disasters Never far Off When on a Boat!

Sunday 26th June 2022 it’s hard to believe how much I’ve been enjoying our sailing in Fiji these past few weeks; anyone who knows me or reads my blog will be aware of my passionate dislike of sailing, but for the past few weeks we’ve had some of the loveliest weather, and gorgeous smooth sailing […]

Unspoiled Beauty

One of Crazy Daisy’s favorite stops when in the Fijian Islands, has always been ” The Sacred Islands” Navadra, Eori, Kadomo and  Vanua Levu. These are a small group of Islands that lie northwest of  the Mamanucas. They’re totally uninhabited, other than goats and many, many sea birds, including the rare “White Tern”. The anchorage we’ve […]

Batten Down the Hatches

Monday 20th June 2022 Following a few rain squalls yesterday afternoon, we woke this morning to a sky that was ominously dark grey and foreboding. The wind was slowly gaining in strength, but it looked as though the actual storm was way off in the distance. A couple of people were out on their foils, […]

Shameful people

Sunday 19th June 2022 I can hardly believe I’ve been in Fiji for 12 days now, how time flies when you’re having fun! It really is so beautiful here, the water is crystal clear and warm as bath water, the islands are so pretty,  the snorkeling is great and the coral is looking very healthy, at […]
