|Joe and Leah relaxing and cooling off!|
We had a great visit with lots of time for exploring and catching up.
|Snorkeling the Sand Bar|
We even got to put up the sail - so nice to be on the water again even if we weren't going fast!
|Love these Blue Starfish|
|Touring Garden of the Sleeping Giant|
Our first stop - viewing the beautiful orchids at the Garden of the Sleeping Giant.
Over 2000 varieties of orchids - it is amazing to see all of the colors and shapes. Plus, what a beautiful setting.
Love this place - always something new blooming.
|Wow - so many beauties|
Next to Nadi to tour the Sri Siva Subrahmaniya Swami Temple.
|Sri Siva Subrahmaniya Swami Temple|
We were allowed to enter the temple as long as we were properly dressed - no knees showing and no shoes.
|So much to look at|
|Raintree Lodge - cuties|
What a great place - wonderful rooms and scenery, good food, and it is right next to the Colo-I-Suva Forest Reserve.
|View around our lodge|
The Reserve has miles of paths, waterfalls, amazing mahogany trees, plus lots of birds - which is just what we were looking for.
|Lilly pond pretties|
Sorry I didn't get any pictures - it was pretty soggy (Soggy Suva) when we started our hike. Oh well!
|Grand Pacific Hotel|
We also visited the Fiji Museum and a quick tour of the newly renovated Grand Pacific Hotel - it was gorgeous. Wish it was in my budget!
We also found a great places to eat - Cafe Victoria in downtown Suva, plus the food court in the MH. Check'em out!
|Natadola Bay Golf Course|
This is where the Fiji Open is held - it is beautiful - but can be windy!
Back on Moondance, we loaded up and sailed back out to Musket Cove for some more fun.
We hiked, did some birding, snorkeling, and lots of R&R'ing, plus enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Dick's!
|Leah relaxing on Honeymoon|
Leah and I relaxed while the guys snorkeled, then we all checked out the tiny beach.
Even scared up an eel - yikes.
On Joe and Leah's last day, we motored back to Denarau with a quick stop at Namotu Island where the famous Cloudbreak surf break is. The picture doesn't capture the colors of the water - it was beautiful.
|Love that water|
Sad to see Joe and Leah leave, but know that we will see them again soon.
|Getting ready for company|
