In Hunga Lagoon, Vava'u

Yit is showing you still in the lagoon @ 19:42 Thurs 30th. Did you get to The beach house other side of island south west Fofoa? Any other trepid travelers there? Al

Hi Al, now in Fiji! Sorry for the late reply didnt have very good internet in Tonga! We didn't see the beach house there.

Showing on google maps you are 480 miles from Fiji as the crow flies? if you are still in the lagoon. Al

Sorry Mary, our internet wasn't very good in Tonga and haven't been able to log in, we must have missed him!
