Ready to leave Savusavu for Namena Reef

We are finally ready to leave the Savusavu area after a week of doing stuff : orchestrating the rebuilding of our alternator, now successfully back on the engine and working perfectly (yay!), re-provisioning day after day, doing laundry, receiving the package Kris sent to us originally to Musket Cove, snorkeling and diving in some marginal areas near the Cousteau Resort, enjoying re-connecting with our friends from Vuda Pt, Steve and Lindsey on the sv Jenellie, and meeting some great new cruiser friends.  With a new traveling permit in hand,  and with the winds beginning to increase tomorrow, Jenellie and Sidewinder will make their way to Namena Reef, where the diving is supposed to be spectacular, and we will hope for warm sun to come out and shine throughout the weekend. We are taking a dive master from the Cousteau Resort with us, so that we will have a guide for our dives to Grand Central and Chimneys. Because of increased trade winds predicted, we may work our way back to the  shelter of Savusavu, but we shall see.  Obviously, we have found it very hard leaving this northern area, but it will be fun to explore this next beautiful reef preserve about 20 mi. south of here.  Our new camera, which just arrived, is excited to take the next photos for the blog and we look forward to our new adventure.  Love to all, Suzi and David
