Solomon Time

We’re still in Munda, taking things slow: Solomon time. Last week, several boats turned up coming from Papua New Guinea (PNG) including two kid boats. And we’ve had a blast together. Every morning all the kids and mums would gather ashore to do school. The resort was happy for us to use their waterfront terrace, which had a lovely breeze and was in the shade. In the afternoon we went for walks or the kids just hung out together. There were movie nights and play-overs and some happy hour beers for the parents. We also got lots of tips and waypoints for PNG and Indonesia from these cruisers and we’re exited about heading north and west. Unfortunately, they are all heading the other way, back home to Australia and New Zealand. Yet again, we had to say goodbye to new friends but such is life for round-the-world sailors…
