Warm Thanksgiving Wishes from Fiji!

Our first Thanksgiving in Fiji and we had a wonderful time!
Happy Thanksgiving to All!

We had a big crowd of Yachties and Landlovers join in the festivities at The Island Bar at Musket Cove on the island of Malolo.

USA, Canada, and lots of other nationalities were represented.
A Real Turkey - yum!
Aaron and Urgee (s/v Wayward Wind) even brought a turkey.

Just adorable
Ernie (s/v Lauren Grace) spent all day smoking it and it was excellent.
Bellying up to the buffet

Everyone brought their favorite Turkey Day goodies.

Not sure where they found all of the ingredients, but everything tasted amazing.
Round of Bocci anyone?

We were so stuffed - we decided to play around of Bocci Ball to burn some calories. It definitely helped and kept us from slipping into a food coma.

What a wonderful Turkey Day - hope yours was just as good!
Rescuing the volleyball

We had guests aboard Moondance for the weekend - Cheryl and Karen (s/v Interlude). Bill (s/v Island Bound) was around too.

We had such a great time and we spent a lot of time goofing off and exploring the island.
View from the top!

We entertained the locals when we played volleyball - our lack of skills and style, plus landing the volleyball in the coconut palm.
Funk Fish resort - pretty cute

We took the dinghies over to the Funky Fish Resort - a great little backpacker resort.
Yummy lunch at the Funky Fish

They have a daily happy hour: 12-1pm and 5-6pm.

Plus, nice people and inexpensive food can be ordered off the snack menu from 10 - 4.

The curry fish fingers and potato wedges (not low cal) were excellent and we plan to go back soon.
Walking off lunch!
Then a hike to the top of the hill to check out the view and walk off some calories - nice view of the reefs!
Sunset over Island Bound

We also spent a lot of time just visiting with everyone - sharing stories and lots of laughs. Amazing friends and an amazing sunset.
Hanging at the beach

Now, we are recuperating - hah!

Plus, getting back into everyday life at Musket Cove.

Which includes puttering around Moondance (projects), exercise (of some sort), and hanging out at the Island Bar with the few remaining Yachties. A pretty good life.
Taking a break

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed all of the holiday festivities, family, friends, and food of course.

We were thinking about you!

What a fantastic looking Thanksgiving! Far more exciting than our turkey here in temperatures too disgusting to even report. Lets just say we woke to snow - in Kirkland! - yesterday and the thermometer never went higher than 33F! That should make you really enjoy your day. . . ;-)
