What a beautiful forst day here in Fiji. We arrived late yesterday aftern oon at the end of a typical tropical shower and it was evident that the floods a month or so ago were still causing problems - road surfaces are badly damaged and there are still large pools of water in anumber of places.
We had a majestic sunset last night and we awoke to beautiful blue skies today with the odd fluffy white cloud.
Our resort looks straight out onto the sea and our pool has palm trees lining the pthways and is just a few metres from the sea. Everywhere you go you are greeted with a cheery "Bula!) - the local greeting for hello/welcome/ how goes it/nice to see you/thank you etc.
John has already found a Fijian Rugby magazine to read by the pool and we managed a couple of swims to cool off on the outside and an ice cold glass of Fiji Gold beer to cool down on the inside.
This afternoon we took a boat trip over to the nearby island to view the sea. sky, sand from a different angle.
Have booked a couple of day trips out = one by sea one on land. more updates later .... sunset to see !
