Rain and more rain

Reboot has been caught here in the Kingdom of Tonga between several competing weather systems. The result is that we have had rain every day. There are brief periods of overcast. We use them to swim and visit the shore. Not only does this situation affect Vava'u but also the weather for our planned transit to Fiji. So we are pretty much stuck until the weather changes without the advantage of being able to truly enjoy the islands.

Although our situation is less than ideal I feel sorry for those who chartered for a one or two week. They too have been stuck in this weather but at far greater expense.

We are hoping for a window on Monday to depart.

Fair winds. and following seas :)

More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
