 Day 13
16°20'S. 176°52'W
228nm to go

Do you see that, 228nm to go that's under two days, yes yes...haha
As you properly guess I'm a tad excited, am so over this crossing, and I for one can't wait to get there, although I may change my mind in the next few days, as we are going to have to be on hi alert.
We will be coming into the areas that have a lot of small islands, shallow waters, and reefs.
The entry into Fiji is going to be very nerve racking by what we are reading in our many pilot guide books and what we see on the maps.
They tell us they are not always accurate either great.

But on a brighter note we are getting closer to home, on our SSB Radio, which we connect to for sailmail, there are NSW stations coming up now although we can't connect to them yet they are there.
And I woke to sunshine and calm waters yay, but no wind, well I guess you can't have everything.

And we just spotted dolphins, this is a sure sign that land is close.

We had a busy day today, I took advantage of the calm weather to start cleaning and organising this little ship of ours to be ready for customs.
Fiji is very strict on what you can and can not take into their island.
So we have been rearranging hiding some stuff and trying to use up others, also The Captain has put a lock on one locker so we can padlock it, as some alcohol may have to go into it.
I have hidden a lot, but after going through the lockers and working out what we have, well we have way too much on board you are only allowed a litre each, huh we have about twenty times plus, sometimes they will allow it, if you have a lockable locker and they will put a seal on it.
But we have hidden enough to have some major parties if we wanted...haha

Well tomorrow is another day.
