Good to hear from you. Bev and I are at Gulf Harbour, but will likely move to Marsen Cove tomorrow for a Saturday checkout to Fiji. We'll likely check in at Suva or more likely Savusavu. Had a lovely time with Ann & Mark at Great Barrier Island a couple of weeks ago. It would be great to see you all. Robbie

Sorry we haven't had a chance to meet up this summer. I hope we will see each other in Fiji. We plan to check in in Savusavu. Judy and Ray from F dock are planning to visit us for a couple weeks in Fiji. Best of wishes, Bob & Joyce
