Vuda Point, Fiji with the Colorado Traveling Ducks

Tour bus is taking us up the hill for great views.

These bright flowers enhance the view of Nadi Bay.

Off shore we see the Yasawa Islands.

And where are we?

Yuda Look Out

Here at Yuda Look Out.   This sign expresses our feelings.

Fiji Island

Fiji truly is a South Pacific Paradise.   With this view, we were given an assortment of fresh fruit and refreshing natural beverages.   While they were all delicious, the favorite was fresh Fiji pineapple.   Remembering that sweet fruit, makes us long for more, and a return to the South Pacific Paradise.   This Buddhist shrine, is overlooking Nadi Bay.

This was our last touring in Fiji.   We spend our last day on the beach at our resort.   Before packing, we realized that we made too many purchases.   We went with our moms to Jack’s shop and they each purchased another suitcase.   Others had purchased suitcases earlier on the trip, and a few others were in Jack’s with us, getting one more.   Our friend, Stephanie, was already packed and was getting a henna tattoo.

Just getting started.   We went to our rooms and managed to get everything in the suitcases.   And we didn’t plan on buying much at all.   But….   Finally, the packing is finished and so is Stephanie’s tattoo.

It is finished. Beautiful, Stephanie

It was unusual to leave Fiji Sunday evening, fly to Los Angeles, get another flight to Denver, meet our friend and get home Sunday afternoon, about 5 hours before we left Fiji.   The International Dateline makes travel interesting.   If this post shows mostly views of Nadi Bay, we want to emphasize that Fiji consists of islands, and the beach and water views are magnificent.  Also when we were writing this post back home in Colorado, looking out our windows, over 6 inches of fresh snow was on the ground and more falling.   We love Colorado and the snow, but humans being as they are, seems they miss what ever is not right there.   Sunny beaches really appeal when it is winter at home.   We had a great trip with http://www.SmarTours.com    This is their Around The World Trip.  All in three busy weeks.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, hope you are enjoying where you are, but also remembering where you have been.
