Bula blogland!

Ok...so its been mighty quiet around here of late, but I'd feel hypocritical apologising, because I'd do it again in a flash!!!!! We've been in Fiji baby...and it was pure PARADISE :-).

I am not going to bore you with a lot of details...check out the pictures below, they are worth a thousand words IMHO...and on this dreary, rainy, cold day in Canberra, they are medicine for my soul!

 
Warwick Resort - View from our room


Warwick Resort - Sunset on the beach

Warwick Resort - Nadi pool


Warwick Resort - What can I say?...sigh!

The colours are REAL! I boosted one or two (using PioneerWoman actions), but by and large, these babies are the real deal. I used a polarising filter on my lens, which helped a bit too.

We stayed in two different locations, the Warwick Spa and Resort on the Coral Coast, Viti Levu, and the Musket Cove Resort, on Malololailai. Both resorts were fabulous, and I can highly recommend them to you. I'll save the Musket Cove resort photos for another rainy day though.

The Fijian people are just delightful. They are so friendly and welcoming...I had a very hard time leaving.

Better go help with lunch now...more pics later.
Thanks for stopping by.
Sam.
