The weather here is still unsettled, last night we had some wind and rain but today has been sunny with a cool breeze. There is a trough forecast for Sunday with clearing weather following behind. Weather Guru Bob says there may be an opportunity to sail after the weekend, maybe Tuesday.
Today I went exploring around Nufu’alofa. I reckon I have now seen as much of the town as I want to. It’s a spread-out place but not that big. One good thing here is the food, everything I have eaten has been well cooked and fresh. A real delight after the heavily processed foods of North America and Hawaii. My next venture will be to look around the island outside Nuku’alofa. I will see if I can hire a bike for the day.
Since being here I have tried to get decent wifi. It just seems impossible. The cafes have wifi, all of them charge, its not free. However, even after buying a few Mb its so slow that it’s an effort even to send out a few emails. Don’t even think of downloading files. This is the main island and I expected wifi here would be better than the other islands. This is not the case, wifi in Neiafu and Pangai was faster.
So, a quiet day, just killing time, waiting to sail. I notice Truce is getting a bit of green stuff on her bottom, she needs to sail south as well.
