Its still blowing a gale this morning and the skies are overcast, so much for tropical paradise . Had a leisurely morning before heading back to Avarua to visit the market and see if any stalls were open, one of the open shops had some fantastic carvings so purchased a statue of Tangaroa (God of fertility), a carved outrigger canoe, a carved paddle and a native carved drum. I was very happy with my purchases which will be wrapped and delivered to the resort before we leave for Tahiti.

We then took care of some banking and visited a bar called the Banana Lounge for a few beers before heading back to the resort for another meeting with the celebrant, we are a little concerned now that the weather could have a detrimental affect on the wedding.

In the evening the owners of our resort put on a barbie for the guests, ten all together, it was pleasnt evening of good food, a few drinks and good conversation. Tomorrow we take an Island 4WD tour in the morning before getting married at sunset.

The wind continues to blow.
