THE OLD MANOR HOUSE

NAVUA RIVER TRIP

HOME PAGE UP

Nerida recommended this to us.  She said to phone a number she left and then pick up the boat at Navua which was about six miles away.  She said to be sure to buy some sweets for the village children to take with us.  This we did and it was really an amazing day made all the better because we were doing alone rather than being herded on to a tourist coach.  This is one reason why exchanging homes suits us so much.
