Of course, cruising is more than margaritas on the beach at sunset (Mexico seems like a long time ago ...) We are actually tied to a dock for the first time since leaving New Zealand in May to sort out some logistics before the passage back to New Zealand.
Normally we do not use a lot of fuel but our amble through the Yasawas to Savasavu was against the trade winds and our buddy boat had a schedule so we used rather a bit more fuel than usual ... Being at the dock made the usual routine of ferrying our three jerry cans by dingy and then by foot to the petrol station and back (repeat as necessary) easier than normal.
Here we are loading the fuel. Victoria helped by tying on a line so I could easily lift the 25L containers (from the fuel company) to the deck and Johnathan did yeoman service as we hand pumped 300L through our Racor funnel filter.
