South Pacific Survey, 12 June 1951
Finished marking out the main runway today and disagreed about the position of the mooring buoys so they have decided to lift them and replace them elsewhere. The big sweeping floats are being got ready by M Bignall on the slipway and look as if they will take some towing too.
Not much of interest, except the run in and out of Apia, which is always interesting with the Samoan drivers.
Went out to dinner with the Whitlocks and it was a spread, and after an interesting evening's chat home to bed.
