Savu Savu, Vanua Levu and back to Viti Levu - September/October 2017

We decided to sail to the smaller of the main islands, Vanua Levu, to the town of Savu Savu.  Our friends from SV Terrapin were there.  The plan was to sail there with SV Cape D, and Cape D would leave their boat there for Cyclone season.  We would then sail back to Viti Levu with SV Terrapin and catch up with friends again at Musket Cove.

Noah turned 11 while we were in Fiji.  
He had a huge birthday brownie!  Happy birthday, Noah!

So good to see Jessica and Emma again.  
Our boys, plus Julian from Cape D and Jessica and Emma
 have all grown quite a bit since we saw them last.

Of course, what would cruising be like with electronics and Roblox
