This is also a wonderful picture of a wonderful place, Ian! I like it a lot! Best wishes, Anne

Thank you Anne. The colours created by coral and sand beneath the water make this a most colourful waterway. This a little piece of paradise to which yachts crossing the Pacific always come.

Warmest regards from Tonga,

Hi Ian, I like the colours! the boat is a bit sad but has some character and the colour of the coral.

LIKE and best wishes

Greetings Greg.

I am always impressed by the colours of Vava'u. The first time I saw this long inlet it was a beautiful stunning blue from the limestone suspended in its water. This time that colour wasn't there, but the clarity revealed the variations of the depths and sandy bottom.

Warm regards from Tonga,
