Viani Bay

The wind died early in the evening at Fawn Harbor and we were so happy. After a good night's sleep, we were ready for a new adventure out at sea, thinking we would be continuing the bashing into the easterly winds, as we had done the day before. But, lo and behold, there was no wind today, so we motored the 20+ miles up to Viani Bay, just inside from Rainbow Reef. It took us a long while to find an anchorage shallow enough to be comfortable, but we did, and we are nestled behind a little island along a stretch of land with several houses and a small village: S16 degrees 45' and E 179 53'. We are scheduled to go on a dive tomorrow morning with a dive master who lives here in the bay, but I am feeling pretty weird, achy all over, temp, and no energy, just like David did two days ago, so I am not sure if it will happen tomorrow or Sunday. There is no wind right now, and it would be a perfect day to dive tomorrow, so I am hoping for the best. Who knows what this little bug is!! (It is the only time I have felt sick since we left in 2008, which is certainly amazing.) Sorry to tell you, the weather is absolutely beautiful, and we are right across from the island of Taveuni, much larger than I had imagined.  I am excited to explore. -Suzi
