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 […]
Beam me up Scotty!
Thursday 11th August 2022 Oh dear God where do I begin! So far the last 2 months aboard Daisy have been miraculously, for me, (the reluctant sailor) amazing. I’ve loved everything, the beautiful beaches, the fabulous resorts, the fun days and nights hanging out with wonderful friends, even the sailing, it’s truly been a dream. […]
Sometime in July 2022 With Daisy fully provisioned and cleaned, we left Denarau marina and headed back over to Musket Cove, just for the night. The plan is to work our way slowly back up the Yasawa Island chain, we have no schedule, no dates to meet, no visitors to pick up, our time is […]
Fiji, July 2022 Yes the (miss)spelling is deliberate, and I know it won’t win me any fans, but then thats never been what my writing is about. I would like to start by saying that I have friends who have catamarans, and they’re very responsible, knowledgable sailors, considerate of the sea life and coral reefs. […]
Tuesday 19th July 2022 Wind! We’ve had more than our fair share of wind this week, while traveling up the chain of the Yasawa Islands. We had dropped anchor in a lovely bay alongside a very long deserted beach, with no village and no other cruising yachts; my first thought “maybe I could find that […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
