North Sentinel Island & The Sentinelese

Due to the vagaries of the Small Isles ferry, we spent a bit longer on Rum than we anticipated. You might think that eight days would be too long to stay on an island that only supports a handful of houses and a shop in a shed. But the longer we stayed, the more we came to love the place. I always enjoy going out to Lavaman Waikoloa to watch, cheer people on and take pictures. Since this is one of the few races that I don’t race or volunteer at, it’s a nice change of pace.

If you’re heading to¬†Australia and Victoria¬†be sure then to check out the Victoria beaches at Frankston.

These long, wide, safe sandy bay beaches are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and diving,

With excellent launch facilities, they are also popular for boating, while foreshore reserves are great for picnics and barbecues.

There are a number of lovely small, sandy bay beaches between Mount Eliza and Mornington including Daveys Bay, Canadian and Half Moon bays, Ranelagh and Sunnyside beaches and there are also a number of safe, sandy swimming beaches around the picturesque bay harbour of Mornington and surrounding areas.

These include Mills, Scout, Shire Hall, Mothers, Royal and Fishermans beaches.

Four hours is the flying time from Brisbane to Nadi, with a 45-minute duration connecting flight from Nadi to Labasa. High speed Water Taxi Transfer from Labasa to Mavuva Island Resort takes approximately 25 minutes, with a total of approximately six hours travelling time from Brisbane to Mavuva Island Resort. Job opportunities – well, would you work for $2 an hour when you could go fishing or make mats or sit under a mango tree and tell stories. Working in resorts ain’t everything. Sometimes the staff are treated as servants and not real people. A very real kind of class system.

Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off …
