Well we had a wonderful time at the Musket Cove Regatta. It was definitely a really long week of so many events that it was hard to keep up. We seemed to be going from one thing to the next but it was a ton of fun. I think my favorite parts were the fun sailing races that we participated in with our friends from Shine. We gathered on Shine's boat with a few other families. We all brought food and drinks and while the men got to get there racing minds in gear... the rest of the family (crew) were able to sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery as it went by. I also loved watching Chris and Amaia race the hobie cats around. I was really surprised at how much fun she had and watching her raz the other competitors a touch, in good spirit of course, was really cute. Otherwise it was a lot of eating, drinking, sun and dancing in the evenings.. We had a few of our friends arrive a few days ago and they also joined in the fun. Skyus with their 3 kids and Por Dos with their 2 boys joined Shine, Miss Behaving, Talulah Ruby II, and us for many of the events. The last day was the dinghy decorating and the kids had spent all day getting the dinghy ready for a circus performance and also getting their costumes put together... they were by far the most colorful and I am really glad that the dinghy didn't sink with 11 kids hanging off of it...

Amaia so happy sailing with daddy in the hobie cat races
First race was with both girls.. the next races were to early in the morning for Alina..
The kids had a lot of fun spending the day playing with costumes and decorating the dinghy for the show...
Always time for a little play... Amaia and Alina looking for Starfish and Sand dollars.
We will be staying here for the Fijian Rugby vs. England game at 7am on Saturday morning and then heading out to catch up with Shine and start showing Oma some of the wonderful Island getaways that we can get to so that she can get a taste of the circus boat life.
We will be checking on the Tsunami warning for Fiji tonight. With the 8.3 earthquake in Chile it has sent a possible Tsunami our way, and although minor... only 30cm to 1 meter it will still make for an interesting push around midnight tonight. We are in a really good place and it is well protected but not knowing our mooring and how well it is maintained.. we will need to make sure all is good.
Hugs and love to all...
