Even more exciting, the humpback whales and calves will be heading south on their annual migration back to the Antarctic after mating and giving birth in the warm Pacific waters. And it all happens just off our doorstep. How stunning is that going to be!
For now though, it’s the last of the packing. A suitcase full of food items you won’t find in Neiafu, a kitbag of shorts and t-shirts, and of course our most important piece of luggage - Jas’s fishing rods, spear-gun, snorkel, flippers and wetsuit! Oh, and somewhere amongst it all will be my lap-top. With a bit of luck the solitude will draw together all the wispy ideas floating around in my head and in turn get my next book underway!
