|Stacey and Brett on Bus #1|
Stacey and Brett on s/v Bella Vita decided to join us for the adventure, which took 2 bus rides, a hike, and some hitchhiking - just to get there.
But we made it - just in time for the welcoming ceremony for the Attorney General and Minister for Tourism.
We lingered after the dancing and chanting and were rewarded with tea sandwiches, cakes, and juice. A very proper tea. What a treat!

|Enjoying the entertainment|
But, the races were always fast - no saddles required - and the riders intense.
|Dancing in the field|
We also had music and dancing between races to entertain the crowds.
So, a very good day at the races.
|The Haka - time to rumble|
We didn't stay for all the races.
The crew of Tiger Lilly invited us to join them to attend the Challenger Rugby round between Fiji and the Cook Islands at the sports field in Lautoka - glad we did!
|Half time entertainment - a hoot|
The Fijians know how to have a good time for sure.
The match was a blow-out. Fiji won 108 - 6. Now, they are qualified to play in the World Cup 2015. Pretty exciting.
|Pool at the Farmers Bar|
|American beer - yikes!|
The finale - drinks and rounds of pool at the Farmers Bar in Nadi.
It was a helluva day and we enjoyed every minute of it. Wish you could have joined us!
