Last night as we were heading into town for dinner at, where else, the Whale’s Tale, we heard music emanating from Mary’s Lodge. I peeked my head in the door and we were invited in for kava and a sing-a-long. Four local folks, some teachers at the Methodist High School, were playing the guitar, ukelele, and singing four part harmony – wonderful! And after dinner, we attended a fundraising concert at the Town Hall, featuring local musicians, a great way to end our time on Ovalau.
We’ve really enjoyed our time in Levuka; it’s an off-the-beaten path location that offers much to the visitor. The Levuka Homestay has been wonderful; the service here is excellent (much better than the 4 star hotel we stayed at in Lami Bay), the breakfasts huge and delicious, and the hosts John and Marilyn genial and warm. Nox’ tours were one of the highlights of our visit; we really enjoyed seeing and experiencing a bit of Fijian life in his company. He is a gracious and gentle man. Thanks to John, Marilyn, Nox, Matilda and La for making our visit so enjoyable.
