Today was the worst weather I have had so far. It rained all morning. It was OK this arvo. They are predicting thunder storms for tomorrow so I am looking for snorkelling the day after that. I will probably spend a bit of time on my balcony tomorrow. I did get out this arvo and had a look around town. There is not much to see but a lot of great sights if you look at the right time.
This morning it is pissin rain and looks like it has set in for the day. I thought it was a good chance to go check out the vanilla industry. A number of years ago the arse fell out of the vanilla industry here. A few years ago an Aussie couple worked out how to get a govt grant, of course, and kick started the industry again.
This morning I walked up Mt Talau. They say it is 131mtr but by the time I got to the top I thought they might have left off a zero. The view from the lookout at the bottom of the phone tower is pretty spectacular. The weather today turned out to be OK but they say today is the best we gonna get for a week. Looks like I won't get a chance to snorkel here any time soon. Maybe Sunday when there is a big feast at Eneio beach?
This morning I walked to the causway at Taoa. There is a big yacht repair yard there and not much else. I was looking for a place I can actually get in and out of the water to try Snorkeling. When I got there there was a sign saying I couldn't swim there cos thee is poo in the water. Two days ago I went to the causway at Pangiamotu, the other direction, and there was a sign there to say no swimming cos there is poo in the water. I'm not having much luck so I tried the old harbour and guess what there is a sign there. They might be old signs but I'm not about to doubt them and give it a go.
I might update this so I will put up the link when I have finished.
