Kava and Coconuts. Preparing coconuts and a little kava - helps with the machete  handling. Will be making the coconut milk for the fresh fish curry. Sue and Rajesh picking the Kumquats. Made a delicious kumquat juice - very refreshing. #unravelling #travelling #travel #ocean #fiji #coconuts #kumquat #curry #fishcurry #cooking #sea
Para Grass covering those dunes. Introduced for grazing. Coastal sheoak (Casuarina)naturally on the dunes and coastal drift wood. Plenty of driftwood on this beach #travelpics #travelpic #fiji #beach #ocean #southpacific #driftwood #casuarina #sheoak #paragrass #sunshine #dunes #sigatokasanddunes #sheoak #travelling #unravelling #travel

Wahoo for dinner. Nice to have fresh fish. Hard to find around here - usually fresh frozen. #fish #fishing #wahoo #dinner #fishdinner #fiji #25kg #freshfish #travelpic #travelpics
Natondola Beach, Fiji. The local villagers are set up offering massage, hairstyling, horse riding, fishing and surf trips at reasonable prices. Me and the boys took the short boat trip out to surf Natondola left reef break at 2-3 ft. A hollow fast wave breaking over coral. Plenty of opportunity to be shiskabarbed. #ocean #fiji #travelpics #travel #surf #surfing #surfers #massage #fijivillage #natondola #beach #beachlife #sea #fun #relaxing
Rajesh’s goats and house. Beautiful evening view from the hilltop where we are staying. Peter has set up a great lighting experience around the house.enjoying fijitime.#ocean #palm #palmtrees #sunset #goats #travelpics #coconuts #sealife #fiji #fijitime #travel #travelphotography
Holed up in Malaqereqere Fiji for a few weeks at Lancaster Press studio while Sue completes artist in residency for two lithography prints. The caretaker - Rajesh - providing  a lesson in coconut preparation for curry milk.#coconuts #coconutmilk #curry #fiji #artist #lithography #travelpics #travelling #ocean #pacific
Lizzie goes undercover. Hopefully the engine repair won’t take too long and meanwhile the weather not too hot. #boatmaintenance #painting #pumprepair #boatinglife #sailor #sail #cover #boat #boating #woodenboat #sailinglife #sailing #sailingboat #enginerepair
Engine out and thorough clean up. Some oil in the bilge. The water pump was in a bad way. The internals - bearings, spacers, seals and circlips had completely  disappeared. During the process of removing the sea water pump I discovered that  the seal in the gear box shaft is damaged and requires replacing. That explains the bilge oil. Too big a job for me at this stage. So the engine was dropped off at the professionals for an over haul. She will have to go back in the water without and engine for the time being. #pumprepair #boatmaintenance #engine #enginerepair #sail #boat #painting #boating #boatinglife #woodenboat #sailor

Pefect conditions  for a south west destination. Leaving Melbourne behind us. Finally made it back to the Werribee River and was able to sail up to the mooring. #sail #boating #boat #travelpics #woodenboat #fishingboat #sailingboat #spring #travel #melbourne #sailor #sea #ocean#sealife #boatlife
She’s still there. Looking for a favourable wind for Point Cook as water pump bearing is damaged - no motoring #boating #sailboat #boat #ocean #sailor #sea #sealife #travel #travelpics #boat #boating #boatlife #stkilda
