B&B Hut in the South Pacific? Sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?
The hut that Zachary stayed in wasn’t called a B&B by the locals but Zachary tells me that’s essentially what it was. It is located near an active volcano. At one time somebody came and stayed there for a whole year while they studied the volcano.
So, should you be intrigued enough to take a trip to an active volcano that has no guard rails to protect one from venturing too far, Vanuatu is the place to go. I’m sorry but I don’t know the exact name of the island, but if you’re interested contact me and I will get right on that.
Solar panels that charge a car battery so you can have lights at night.
The bed is a wooden frame with boards upon which a woven coconut mat is laid with a small piece of foam on top of that.
The roof is woven coconut leaves. In the time that Zachary stayed there, no rain water made it through these leaves. Very waterproof!
Bath House – Shower was in one-half and toilet in the other half.
No hot water but there was always tea heating up on the stove to warm yourself after the
brrrr invigorating shower.

One day an outing to the volcano was planned for the youth. It was 15 miles round-trip. I was impressed by the stamina of the younger kids, especially.
Rainy & Cloudy Day…
made for chilly weather.
The earth is warm for miles around from the heat of the volcano. When they reached the top it was clouded in. On a clear day, they say you can see the flames of destruction.
Breakfast that morning was tea and bread.
Lunch was a type of sweet potato.
Supper? Well we’ll have to hike back 7.5 miles to find out.
