Good evening from Fiji. Local time is 9:05pm and we are now 17 hours ahead of Ohio time. Why is it that travel days spent in the airport are so tiring? We left New Zealand hotel in Christchurch at 6:15 am and then got to Auckland by 9:30am. We waited around the airport and got lunch before boarding and leaving at 2pm. It was a crazy wait. There were about 100 kids starting their spring break and all dressed up in costumes to fly to Fiji…They were fairly well behaved, but a few were quite obnoxious! Thankfully they are not staying at our resort! We were the last of the 12 to fly in and got registered at 5:15pm. The pics above are of our hotel and room. It is beautiful.

We noticed right away the humidity and change in temperature. We were given little wash clothes that were cold and scented with mint. Oh how refreshing! Our guide, Frances, greeted us as family and we were given the itinerary for the next three days. Tomorrow we will go on a city tour and then have a dinner together. The afternoon will be ours to enjoy the resort.

We met up with Taylor, Judy, Cory and Linda for a sunset dinner. The view was incredible. We had pasta and it was delicious. Wynn had fettuccine and I had penne marinara. We split and shared…yummy! There was island entertainment. You will have to see my Facebook for the video. I haven't figured out how to download a video on here.

So tonight it will be early to bed and we are bushed! Here are the few pics I took of the sunset and dancers. Good night from the tired travelers. We are looking forward to spending the next three nights in one place…Wynn and Brenda
