A broken down ferro-cement bogus replica of a viking ship, this rusting, rotting hulk was a big hit with Jonah at the marina. It was formerly a day-charter boat but has been sitting at the marina for years untouched.
Yacht Help/Pacific Marine headquarters. Anything you need they can either get it for you or help you find it. Pacific Marine does paintjobs, bottom jobs, woodwork, etc. YachtHelp also can help with paperwork, visas, immigration, etc.
Dad putting Jonah's bike together. Since we had to spend so much time at Vunda we assembled the bicycle early and Jonah rode it a lot. He had a bicycling partner and mentor, Camille from "Casaneauve" who is 7.
The back entrance to First Landing Resort next door to the marina. Yachties were treated like guests at the marina, we just happen to sleep in our boats instead of one of their rooms. We spent a lot of time at the pool and at the restaurant (mon and fri half price pizza night).
The resort was lovely, the grounds well kept. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff very friendly. They had just finished building 8 new units, air conditioned, some with jacquzzis, etc. and were working on another 4 with plans for a dozen more! Someone must be coming here. No real beach though.
The island of Vanua Levu with the island of Nevadra out of sight to the left. Ahead is the anchorage known locally as Nevadra. We spent 3 lovely days here before we realized our transmission was still not working right.
