Project weekend

After a week in bustling Suva we headed out for an anchorage just round the corner, out on the reef in clear water, to get away from it all and relax a bit. Or so we thought.

Fruit and veg!

Even though Vanua Balavu has a weekly flight, the shops only have basic supplies and there is no local veg market. We asked around and got plenty of fresh veg and fruit from friendly women here! Today we’ll make preserves

Photos from Matuku

Finally, some photos again! Village life and beautiful nature on this little island in the south-western Lau group. We did our best to spread the word about overfishing and sustainability among the kids as well as the chiefs and headmen and it looks like the villages will indeed start protecting their reefs!
