COMMENT: Beach House – DOCKED – Apia, Western Samoa
So far, a very pleasant surprise. We heard the marina wasn\’t particularly nice, but we think it\’s just fine! We got the last slip too! There are only about 8 so far.
They are putting in lots more. There is 220V/50 hz power which we can use on \”Beach House\” and we can keep the batteries up and the small air conditioning unit on at night. It\’s 90 degrees F right now (32.7 C) and it\’s 6:30 pm as I write. The docks are nice and clean with good power. The facilities look good (from afar). There is a small restaurant here as well.
When we came in the harbor, there were 4 Chinese Rust Bucket fishing vessels moving hodge podge all over the harbor. We felt like we were playing a bit of dodge ball and we were the ball!
We left at 0410 a.m. this morning and arrived here at 5:15 p.m. This included a two hour time change (later time – as they are on Daylight Savings) and are +14 on UTC!
As such, this is the new land (as of 2012) where the new day begins (Politically at least….:-)). We hope to spend up to a week here and so far, it looks like we might find a bit of gem? We shall see!
Scott and Nikki
