Here at the marina the gals in the office seemed genuinely happy to see us when we came back in from a week long trip to other islands. It is nice to be missed and welcomed back! They greet us with "Welcome Home!." And I can see it will be our home on and off for the 10 weeks or so that we will be in Fiji.
|You can walk the beach for miles - at low tide!|

crewed with us in two Caribbean 1500 Rallies.
The World ARC Rendezvous and farewell dinner for those of us dropping out for the year was held at Musket Cove Marina and Resort. We are now members of the Musket Cove Yacht Club. It is a lovely resort with a nice marina, pool, restaurant and 800 acres to explore. The World ARC has been stopping here for the past eight years.
|"Bula, Bula" is the Fijian greeting meaning|
"welcome" or "hello." The word for
thank you is "Vinaka."

Resort. There are cottages tucked into different settings.
