Prob. Trying to get a flying fish en route to Vella Lavella. Sea a bit rough for camera at 1/50.
Dr. Grace's planned itinerary called for him to be in Vella Lavella from Sept. 13-20, 1955. This image is one of a number he shot while traveling back and forth between Gizo and Roviana. The sequence of slides from number 242 through 256 all were shot on the return trip from Roviana to Gizo.
