Little Bay, Vanua Balavu, Fiji

The following morning we departed LomaLoma at 9am and motored N, picking our way through the coral patches.  Enroute we ran the water-maker, only to have the hose leak, causing the boat's instrumentation to indicate that the engine was overheating.  So while Rob investigated the rest of us set the sails and sailed close hauled with a look-out positioned on the bow - fortunately Rob quickly identified problem was the water-maker high pressure hose (aaarrrh!) and we were soon motoring again - and were able to enter into Little Bay through a very narrow passage to a beautiful tranquil anchorage.  We all went in the dinghy through to the next inlet which was surrounded by mangroves - indeed the mosquitos were quite ferocious that night.
