Along with our daughter, son–law and my DH we spent 10 fabulous days on the island.
We have been promising for about 6 years to visit Mary – of Devon House fame and finally managed. I’m not linking to Mary’s Blog as she has woeful photos of me there.
What a pleasure it was to meet with her again and see the wonderful island. Originally a penal settlement for the British it now belongs to the descendants of the Mutiny of the Bounty.
No matter which way you turn there is something to delight the eyes. The people are so friendly and helpful to all.
We were greeted at the airport by our gracious hosts Mary and her DH Bernie, taken to our unit and given coffee and cake and later went to their home for a delicious
meal of local fish and vegetables. The fish was to entice the men to catch their own, which didn’t happen as the weather turned wet and windy, due
to the tail end of the Fijian cyclone. Not that the weather stopped us touring and it was never cold there. Showers were intermittent.
We had several meals with Mary, Bernie and family and they were most enjoyable. It is always
good to meet those whose photos you’ve seen over the years.
Mary’s son hung a whole bunch of green bananas outside our unit and we picked them as they ripened daily. Such bananas !! I have never tasted
This is the view from the unit. Too busy sightseeing to use the pool.
