Dear Friends;


Les just returned yesterday (our Thanksgiving Day, we're a day ahead of people in the states) from an enjoyable trip to visit Michelle (s/v Warrior) in Brisbane, Australia.  Philip recently returned from a trip to Panama to settle some issues with property.


And so, we've reset the clock on our Fiji visas and we're all tripped out and anxious to move on back to Vanua Levu island and Savusavu. This we'll do as soon as we get a weather window.  As many of you know, we plan to "cyclone over" in Fiji, using a secure mooring if a storm threatens but mostly exploring Fiji in the meantime.


We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving Day (a belated one to those of you who are on the same side of the dateline as we are). We hope you are all well and will enjoy the holiday.


Your friends of the yacht Carina,

Philip, Leslie and fat cat, Jake
