Hi it’s Khan the animal reporter for the blog!
We were excited to leave NZ to sail to Fiji. Unfortunately we did not have any fireworks like we did when we left Geelong, oh well.
The trip was mostly rolly except for 2 days when the sea was so flat it looked like glass. On 1 of the flat days we went for a family nudie swim in the middle of the Ocean where it was four kilometres deep.
A few days after arriving in Savusavu in Fiji we went and anchored off a beach near a resort.
We did lots of snorkelling on a coral reef with some friends from another boat.
Their names were Josh, Nelia and Claire, who was 7 years young and my friend.
On the reef the fish would swim right up to you. Most of the fish were brightly coloured and quick.
Today Thursday 5th June we left Savusavu to try to go to the Lau group but the wind was too strong so we went to Namena. From Savusavu it was 18nm.
We arrived to see and hear so many booby birds. We went ashore and guess what it was – a big, fluffy baby bird. The baby bird saw us and it almost looked like it was trying to get out of it’s nest to see us!!! And one more thing – they were red or blue footed. The red footed boobys had blue beaks.
