35. "So, you guys eat the beef?" Sailing in Lau Group of Islands, Fiji
I. Hope. The hell is happening. Okay. Did you kill did you kill the back. Ow so, you. Guys see the beef. From. Silva, Fiji's, capital we. Sailed East to the law group of islands, where, our friends, from catamarans, met cozy suave and Invictus, were waiting for us in one of the most spectacular bays. Of the South Pacific. You. Fiji's. Bay of Islands is one of the world's most beautiful Anchorage's. In the remote log group of islands on the, northern, side of the now Beliveau, island insider. Lagoon protected, by a barrier reef are lava tunnels, and mushroom, rocks caves. And tidal pools, spectacular. Corals and marine life white. Sand beaches and turquoise waters. Tall. Coconut, palms and wild papayas. We. Explored, the bay with our kayak paddling, through the rock lava tunnels. There, was a small hidden cave in the rocks we could enter with our kayak at high tide the. Walls inside, the cave were covered, with graffiti. After. More than six, months we, were back in the warm tropical waters, of the coral reefs. While. We were admiring the little Nemo's and Dory's playing, hide and seek in the corals my, dad was chasing, a larger, parrotfish with his heart flew. I. Trained. Yeah, I'm happy turning. I'm, for, you I'm, okay. Okay. To. To give it to you on the beach that you can play with it Oh. In the evening, we made a fire on the beach with mattresses 100, victus like the good old times it's, great to have both friends, and share with them so many unforgettable. Moments. The, next day we decided to do something about this vertical, rocky shores right behind their boats, so, first recline, them. Well. Ramaiah. I. Live. In LA. Then. Jill attached, a rope from the top of the rocks to his boat and made a zipline. So. What's the thing you're holding. Finally. We jumped, and it, was really terrifying. Me. And my friend Sam were sure we were gonna die because, it was not a very safe activity. Not. Far from where the boats were anchored we found the saltwater swamp, landlocked, in one of the rocks and, went for a swim. The, water inside the swamp was murky with soft mud on the bottom hard. To swim through the mangrove roots. We. Didn't see much life here. But. Then completely. Unexpected. A bright, orange and blue nudibranch. Nudibranch. SAR sea slugs stunningly, beautiful, literally. These. Brightly colored creatures, are toxic, they, use chemical, weapons to, kill their prey and to take out other creatures, who threaten them the. Slugs eat deadly, chemicals, and stockpile, the most toxic compounds. For use on their enemies. On the, northeast side of a now Bolivar, is a golden, sand beach with palm trees and, beautiful shallow, corals. One. Day we've heard dogs barking, and saw a cow in the water and men with machetes, chasing, the cow my. Mom together with Steph Jill, and Sam from Afridi's wall jumped. In the dinghy and went to see what's happening. What. The hell is happening. You. Want to kill the cow there. Was many dogs. Ok. Did you kill video killed the cow. Here. And. The dog did you find the dogs. Eventually. The men killed the fugitive, cow after more than 12 hours of chasing, it all around the island but. They lost their dogs. No. No we. Just came today here ok, and then we heard the dogs. But, did this cow escape why, did you chase it all day. There. Is a farm but. The cow escaped. So. You. Guys eat the beef yes. The. Village, make. A make a call, yeah, wait for to. Fight, but on the other side on the other side of yeah. Right. Over to the beach and load, all our cows. Some. Beef okay. This. Afternoon. Okay. All. Right. This. Was probably one of the weirdest, experience we've ever had. Thank. You so much. With. The machete and. When. Did you start in the morning what time. They've. Been chasing the cows instead o clock in the morning and, it came, up 7:30.
In The evening so. We gave them some bread. What else it. We. Were trying to save the cow and, now we're so happy. Said. Okey dokey smokey why should I take what's wrong please, save the cow and then oh. Don't. Eat some meat my. That's. It I'm and. I'll just give you pleasure, oh. The. Men we helped to brought us a lot of meat and my mom cooked ragu for everyone. Boiling. The meat for a few hours, adding vegetables. It. Was delicious. We. Had ragu five times in the next couple of months. Well, this, was our great adventure, and Fiji's bay of islands hope, you enjoyed it we, surely did best. Times with awesome friends in an amazing, place and a runaway cow what. More can you want. You.
