What a Wonderful Place, Tonga
We are currently in the process of gunk-holing around the Islands of Vava’u. Basically Vava’u is a mass of of small Islands that are all connected by underwater reefs or by land bridges but they can be explored by boat. We are currently anchored in Port Maurelle which was the First place that the Spanish Navy landed. As we sailed from Neiafu which is the city in Vava’u group we sailed by a hump back whale and I was shocked at the size of the whale. It swam next to us for a 1/4 mile and then disappeared. After that wonderful afternoon we spent the evening around a beach fire, ate lamb chops, and potatoes that our friends on Calico Jack gave us, Thank Travis and Joanne. You can see Calico Jack blog at http://www.sailcalicojack.com . So today we are going to go explore a cave that you snorkel into and then do some scuba diving with Calico Jack. Hope all is well with you.
