BULA from Fiji!
It's Friday, February 1 and it's a beautiful day in paradise today!
No rain and a wonderful chance to explore Yanuca Island, which is where the Fijian Shangri-La is located. We walked towards the west end of the island where the Shell Market is located, visited the PADI dive shop on the premises and looked at the listing of tours available and decided, nah, we're just going to relax today!
We spent our morning around the largest of their three pools, it's the "family" pool and we had lots of Australian families enjoying the end of their summer holiday.....kids in life vests, swimmer arm bands and float rings were totally enjoying the water with their moms & dads! They do have an "adults only" pool a short distance away, but after all the quiet down at the Pearl, it was nice to be around happy families!
Epi, one of the staff, met us after lunch as we were walking around looking lost and when we asked him where the wedding chapel was he said, "Wait here, I'll get the golf cart and take you there...it's a very long walk!" Well, he was right...it's at the far eastern end of the island, past the 9-hole golf course and it's absolutely breathtaking. What a beautiful place for a romantic wedding or vow renewal....
This has been a most interesting week, needless to say! We're anxious to get on our way tomorrow morning and board the Nai'a for our week's diving. We both really missed not being able to dive this week, but I was able to check out quite a few properties and just enjoy forced relaxation!
Wish you were here with us!
Moce (good-bye).....until we leave the Nai'a on the 9th!
