I chanced across the Bank, and to my amazement there was an ATM, and even more amazing, it gave me money! And next I came across a tiny very simple restaurant, a sort of covered in verandah on a house close to the street facing the sea, and had a meal of raw fish with salad and rice - I think that was all that was on offer but it was the hugest meal Ive eaten in weeks. There were 3 other diners, and I took my time. It all cost 2300 XPF (special Pacific French Francs - about $25)
I then set off for Avera but was offered a lift by a man his wife and 3 kids in 4WD heading that way. They were Mormons. I got back to the boat at 4 and all was well.
