Leaving Savusavu

After a week here in Savusavu, we're about to leave for more adventures. Our passports were finally given 'Visa Extension' stamps yesterday by the grumpiest Fijian lady we have ever met; Fijians are, by nature, happy and friendly people but those traits had obviously been trained out of her by the Immigration Department.

We've had a busy time here replenishing stocks, cleaning the boat and putting clothes and seat covers through the excellent laundry service at the marina where the lovely Sylvia will do a wash for about £2 or a wash & dry for £4 - the best value and quality washing we've ever found on our travels.

The plan for today, after a last run around the vegetable market, is to head out to an anchorage a couple of miles away from here to be able to get a swim and to stow the dinghy and then we'll head south west tomorrow. The weather forecast looks pretty good so we hope for some good sailing; we'll update the blog when we know just where we are going!
