Day 1/7 -
The awesome sand village
The caves facing the ocean on Navo Island. At low tide you can cross the channel and walk over there. We didn't get to explore as much as I wanted because Clarissa got a headache....booo. I think she was annoyed that I wasn't feeling her pain....but as soon as we made it back across the channel to where she could run off to the pool her headache miraculously disappeared....so I don't feel that bad making faces and taking selfies....
Day 3/7 -
The resort we were at was holding a bridal show....a note was slipped under our door inviting us. Given Clarissa is into all things girlie, she and I went to check it out. They had wedding alters/aisles and reception rooms set up and decorated, food samples, photo booths; brides in white gowns, traditional Fijian wedding things (Masi fabric bridal gowns); traditional Hindu wedding things (bridal sarees, elephants & henna).
Day 4/7 -
So in an effort to avoid the mushy banana top, Clarissa likes to cut her banana off the "hand" (it's the unit they're sold in here). Instead of getting a clean knife every banana somebody eats, it makes sense to stab said knife into top of the hand/stem part (and since hands are usually quite large, if we didn't we would quickly run out of knifes). So this is common place in our house...
Day 5/7 -
Being unable to find any decent tasting spreadable butter here....I have to make my own....
Day 6/7 -
Cat bath....we have cat and apparently that night I needed a bath!
Day 7/7 -
It's nearly summertime, so the water is warm and inviting. For once in a very long time it wasn't pouring rain after dinner (and I mean pouring...it has been coming down these past few weeks!!). So someone went for a swim.....so I semi-broke the rules....but if she's underwater then technically she's part fish/mermaid....so not really a person!?!?
Previous island count 320 Fijian islands visited,
Navo Island visited.....
319 Fijian islands remaining (it's not looking good to get below 300....lol....this is hard work)!!
