Oct. 19 – rainbows and crickets in Vava’u

We started day hopping to different anchorages, often accompanied by other cruisers, sort of like a wagon train on water.    Saw a great conveyor-belt of coral and fish in the shallow waters.  There are so many islands around Neiafu they’re numbered and often that’s how we refer to them.  We visited #7 (Maurelle), #12 (Tapana south), #11 (Tapana), and #16 (Vaka’eitu).

On deck this morning I saw a huge rainbow off our stern, followed by a fine mist engulfing us and the anchorage.  Soon a heavy downpour, strong winds 17-22 knots, then clear skies.  We tried to snorkel yesterday but it was too late after high tide and we couldn’t make it across the reef.  Crickets begin singing at 6:45pm sharp and bats start flying between the trees.  We’re enjoying getting to know the folks on Yolo and just watching nature do its thing.
