Vår Fiji fun time er straks ved veis ende. Fiji har vært fantastisk med øyhopping, kiting, deilig mat, noe funky kava (må ikke forveksles med den spanske sprudlevinen), fjellturer, Skaftnes familietreff(!), fantastiske innfødte, strålende smil og ikke minst; herlige crewmedlemmer ombord. Oda har vært på lynvisitt, Cathrine er og blir vår smilende lady i styrbord forlugar og Kinley har spredd glede på Namaste i nesten en måned 🙂 Vårt opphold kan best oppsummeres gjennom Kinleys (noe interne) Namaste-dikt:
THE POEM OF NAMASTE
by Kinley Viandier
Two (or was it four) back standing Norwegians I first met in Tahiti,
Captain, Blonde, and was that a bearded lady?
Then Tonga with Snickers(h) so grand, it was a holiday that marked my plan,
From Valentine to Kaviar with glee, chilled wine of course and other rarities,
Done for treasure, Cathrine was there,
the most shocking things I heard Mama, you wouldn’t believe it I swear!
Speared for fish, Aquavit
ankerdram for the hell of it.
Bouchon and Ten, I´d always win,
Kava in Suva, Abaca the next morning,
Cloudbreak I tried, a poor attempt for a one big talker.
Crusoe was fun with the hut and the fire.
Our waiter would laugh hysterically so
and we played golf near Namaste – we showed.
Octopussies, Oda, kiting with kids,
it happens so quickly those things I`ll miss.
The hikes, the swims, the dinners and chess,
the greatest things I´d surely confess…
Kinley – you will be missed! Good luck on your sail to Vanuatu and eventually Australia with Valentine and the rest of the Oyster Rally. Namaste hearts you big time! See you in Norway 😉
Next port of call: New Caledonia!
