With a beautiful, cruise ship at Apia wharf and one which was berthed overnight, locals were intrigued to see a group of tourists on the Vaisigano Bridge gazing up stream.
What were they admiring, he wondered?
Sadly the sight they were riveted by, was a flotilla of white polystyrene boxes heading down to the ocean.
Red alert for everyone and particularly M.N.R.E.
We still have a long way to go.
