We took the long boat over to Lomaloma in the rain and wind yesterday to get last minute supplies; they had no eggs nor any veggies, except onions and potatoes, so I will ration out the last of my cucumbers and bok choy as we go south. Today we woke up to beautiful blue skies and sunshine and very light winds. We are doing a snorkel and picnic on the beach with Jacob and Save (Sabe), who are the two locals from Susui showing us a great time; David and the boys are going to dive for clams and then bake them on the beach with mangrove roots for our lunch. We are still planning on leaving tomorrow for Fulanga (Fulaga), which is about 130 miles south. The s/v Pincoya arrived yesterday after doing lots of dentistry in the southern Lau; they said Fulanga was absolutely beautiful with great snorkeling in the pass, so we look forward to exploring that area.
