Back in Vanua Balavu and happy!

The first times we visited Vanua Balavu’s Qilaqila Bay (Bay of Islands), we thought it was really pretty above water (mushroom islands) as well as below water (healthy reefs). Now we are back and after the slightly disappointing experiences with overfished reefs and rolly anchorages further north we REALLY appreciate the protected bay with and its biodiversity. Finally we are well rested again and can hang out with a large variety of big, relaxed fishy friends! Additionally we have internet on the boat, small shops in the main village and some locally grown veg and fruit :-)
The calm anchorage was also a bonus when we had to change the brushes of the watermaker today. Working in the confined space of the bilge and fiddling with tiny parts is tricky enough without Pitufa pitching and rolling…
