Great Fun With Casey Continues On

It has been so wonderful having Casey visit us here in Fiji and so far, today is the first day we have been yachtbound on Sidewinder due to wind. Since his arrival at the end of July, we have been playing hard and having so much fun with son, Casey. It is such a pleasure to be with him and his mellowness has made our small space workable. The surf, sun, and wonderful water have fully co-operated and all our friends have welcomed him with open arms, wishing they could adopt him. He certainly has made living on Sidewinder very easy for me and, of course, Capt David has thoroughy enjoyed teaching him as much as he can in such a short amount of time. He he has quickly stepped up to the plate and is helping with engine, anchoring, driving, sailing, loading the boards into the dinghy ( a great help to me!) and just about everything. We will both miss him so darn much after next Tuesday night, when he flies home, but til then, we continue to cherish the time with him.  After checking out the waves, our first day, on the way to Musket Cove, our adventuring has not stopped until today. Casey met everyone his first night at the barbecue, and the island has embraced him with the Bula spirit. Surfing has been at the top of the list for activities, but we also have snorkeled all over the place. Last week, with the north winds, we took off for Robinson Crusoe Resort and decided from there to head for Kadavu for some diving.  We glided over the glassy water with stars all around the next night and arrived the next morning for a few days of diving and exploring the village life. Unfortunately, we never did find the mantas, but the snorkeling and diving were beautiful. With high wind weather approaching, we sailed our way back to Musket Cove a few days ago and have surfed and partied with friends since our arrival. What great fun we have had. The pictures, of course, will tell the story more thoroughly and there will be more to come, I am sure. For now.........we are truly loving all the time we have with son, Casey.
