Left Port Vila last night and now in Havannah hArbour , North Efate. This was a very busy harbour during WW2 and there’s are many coke bottles to be found. A small museum on the shore of the harbour has a great collection as in those days each coke bottling company made their own bottles and put their city name on them.
