Saane kindly dropped us at the wharf and is stowing what’s left of our valuables at her house. It will probably fit in a small drawer as everything else has had a ‘redistribution of wealth’ ie stolen.
The Fafa fale wow factor didn’t fail to impress and Broni had her mouth agape wanting to use the outdoor shower fifteen times a day. I actually think it is the outdoor showers that puts this special island resort a peg above any old resort stay.
In the afternoon the Queen Elizabeth behemoth of a cruise ship which had docked last night sailed past after a day in Nuku’alofa. It was the equivalent of about an eight floor building… BIG!

We circumnavigated the island clockwise on kayaks before breakfast. Abel Tasman would have been impressed.
The water was like a mirror as there was not a breath of air. Visibility was impressive and not something we have experienced every day. You could see fish and coral without even wearing goggles!
The sun shone through for most of the day so we had endless dips and snorkels to keep cool… Oh and the fifteen daily showers.

We circumnavigated the island counterclockwise on the kayaks before breakfast. Like yesterday the water was crystal clear with very little wind. The water temperature is still very temperate. Saane collected us at the wharf where we encountered Ned her volunteer house guest. He was trying to retrieve his catamaran that had sunk!
