Flag of Fiji  , Viti Levu,
Monday, June 16, 2014

I am happy to beat my alarm and wake just after 8am. The sky is blue, the sun is shining and the breeze is gentle. The morning is bike riding for Emma and reading for me.

And eating, of course. Just to fill in time before lunch...

And with lunch comes a 15 knot wind - enough to kill any ideas of snorkelling at low tide this afternoon. So we engage in a bit of basket-weaving with the activities staff, along with much banter. The staff here are certainly relaxed, friendly and all know our names. Rather than name tags, they wear their names in beaded necklaces which is very handy and a unique touch.

And then a bit more reading, rock pool combing and snoozing. Just to fill in time before dinner...

We arrive early enough to enjoy drinks at the bar (and a cocktail making lesson) before the lali drums signal the nightly torch-lighting ceremony. With just the two of us in attendance, Emma finds herself balancing across the pool on a warrior-propelled bamboo raft while I have endless photo opportunities!

Another delightful dinner, superlative service, some researching for tomorrow's exploration of Suva. The staff seem perplexed that we're happy to catch the local bus into town.

But then again, one did come to close my upstairs window thinking I'd forgotten and another wondered why we were walking rather than driving a golf buggy from the clubhouse to our villa two doors down...
