|Enjoying the gardens|
It was also a good excuse to be wined and dined and do some tourist stuff.
|My special card|
|Balloons and presents!|
Not sure why people avoid birthdays, I thoroughly enjoyed mine!
|Doug enjoying his massage!|
Doug and had I lovely massages at Una's house. $50 (FJ) for a one-hour massage.
|Walking the plank to Una's!|
It was excellent and we highly recommend it.
|Birthday dinner with friends|
Friends from s/v Ranganui and s/v Bonaparte joined us at the Hot Springs Hotel for dinner and dessert (of course).
Then homemade ice cream for second dessert (why not?).
We had a very nice tour of the Flora Tropica Gardens.
Over 300 different types of palms from all over the world - started from seed.
Plus, excellent signs identifying the palms, native habitat, and if the species was threatened.
|Cruising kids having fun|
$5 (FJ) for a taxi ride, plus $20 (FJ) for tickets, that included a guided tour.
|And more palms, of course|
Check it out next time you are in Savusavu!
|Circus in Savusavu|
Nothing to do with my birthday, but the Drifting Circus came to town and performed at the Copra Shed Marina.
|Music and entertainment|
There were about 20 performers from all over the world that arrived in Savusavu aboard 3 sailing boats.
|Spanish music anyone?|
They had some excellent musicians and singers, plus clowns and jugglers that entertained the crowd.
The best part, watching the Fijians belly laugh thru the slapstick comedy routines - too funny!
|Waiting for the bus|
As you can see, I had a wonderful Birthday Week in Savusavu!
I wonder where I will be celebrating #59...
