Flying in the right weather is always a thrill! Greetings, Berend.

At the end of the road that leads to the shore, there is a cave with a deep pool of brackish water fed by freshwater springs. There is a legend of an alluring woman who lived in this cave, and like most legends there are several versions of the story.

Thank you for your appreciation and invitation, akbar&armaghan. I will contribute some images to your group.

Greetings Ah-Pong. Yep, that is real enough and it gets pretty interesting on the ground for this is coralline limestone country with caves and grottos and much more. I have often wondered whether the whole of Vava'u is real for even the map of these islands is a fantastic, unbelievable design! bit like southern Thailand.

Warm regards from Tonga,
