Bula, we were up early this morning and got our bags packed down to a fine art and we seem to be able to fit more and more in them which is good as we keep acquiring stuff all the time. We got a taxi down to the bus station after saying good bye to our home for what must be over 2 weeks at there and we thanked all the lovely staff. We got straight on a waiting coach and we were soon gliding slowly through the forest heading in the direction of Nadi. After a few hours we finally pulled up at a little drive way which leads down to the Beach House. We got our gear and headed for reception. After a quick tour around the place we were really pleased with the welcome we got, all the staff were really friendly and the place was really nice. The owner who is a what I think is called a Beach Comber. A Fijian born White person. He came looking for us to introduce himself and to tell us to make ourselves at home which is a nice touch. After eating some lunch and getting changed into our swimmers we went in search of the sun. We found ourselves a awesome hammock slung between to large palm trees on the beach. We both managed to clamber on without any 'You've been framed moments' and spent the rest of the afternoon either reading or enjoying the sound of the sea and the wind rustle the palm tree leaves. Oh forgot to ask hows the weather back home =) ? Yeah the day was mostly been really chilled out, we had a little photo session later in the afternoon for Laura Facebook Profile picture with a flower behind her ear and i tried getting some nice shots in the garden. One extra good thing about this place is in the afternoon you get free tea and a couple of freshly baked scones. Its really resort facilities at backpacker prices. Fingers crossed for a nice sunset tonight as I'm sat next to the pool watching it start to sink towards the ocean while I write this entry. How we are ever going to go back to work I don't know.

ps Yes the sunset was really nice, I used to think that to get photos of a  good sunset it had to be a clear night but they always seem to have more drama with a few clouds thrown in there to spice it up. What do you think??
