What a day....
We started our tour and Albert was very welcoming warm and friendly he kept us amused on the way to the boat giving us local information and telling us jokes.
Once we got to the boat we were greeted by Fiona and Wooly. Fiona took us for a short walk to show us where they held tribal council which was cool to see although it was a bit over grown which was a shame.
Then we headed over to lelepa for our first stop. A short walk through the bush stopping along the way with Fiona explain how nature helps them survive on the island we found this not only very interesting but also very informative. Then we reached our first snorkel and lunch stop. Snorkeling was good found a little stop were there were about 20 clown fish swimming in and around the coral.
Lunch was a BBQ of chicken and a beef curry and rice the curry was very tasty. After lunch we went on another short walk through the bush to the site where an American WW2 fighter plain had crashed landed where Fiona once again amazed us with her knowledge. It was really good to see such an important part of history.
Next stop was a cave which held a great significance to her village. The cave was about 90 meters long. Not only was it shelter in a cyclone but was also a nursing home of sorts for her ancestors.
Then the next stop was (OMG) the most amazing snorkeling it was off the side of the boat so it was so clean deep so many fish and very pretty coral. I could of spent all day here it was just so amazing.
Then Fiona took us back to her village where we had afternoon tea. They also had a little market set up here. Which was good to give something back to the village. Then a short walk through the village explain different things along the way.back to the boat to the main land .
In short this was an amazing tour was quite humbling. Fiona and her village is fairly primitive compared to our way of life but they are so happy and friendly people. The amount of information that she shared with us was so wonderful.
Thank you for an amazing day.
