Today was an AMAZING day.  We took a Captain Cook Cruise to Mystery Island.  It is a very small private island and we had it all to ourselves for the day.  To give you an idea on size, you could walk around the entire island in 20 minutes.  It was absolutely beautiful... it almost looked like a picture!  And there were blue starfish everywhere!

We started out with snorkeling.  We were actually able to see a lot of fish and coral.  They people that brought us over to Mystery Island brought us out on a small boat to snorkel right above a big reef.  I took lots of pictures and for some reason when I snorkel I kind of end up in my own little world.  I went out a little too far.  All the sudden I heard a noise and popped my head up and saw a glass bottom boat tour was going on nearby!  We probably saw at least 30 different types of fish.  After a little more snorkeling, I realized I was the only on out there and the rest of the group that came out were back on the island... including Paul!  I was having so much fun though and found even clearer water to snorkel in, but farther out.  I took a few more pics and then swam in to the island where everyone had started eating lunch already... oops!  A couple people snorkeling actually were able to see a shark... about 4 feet long... I missed it though.

For the rest of the time, we walked around the entire island, went in the water, and relaxed on the beach.  It was a day that I will probably remember for the rest of my life... how many people can say they were able to do all of that in Fiji?!

We returned to the main island around dinner time.  The boat docks in a tourist area, so we ate at the Hard Rock Cafe tonight and then did a little shopping.  Tomorrow is our last day in Fiji. :(  I wish I had a couple more days to explore the island some more!
