We got in some snorkeling the morning of our departure. Beautiful tiny tropical fish were hiding in coral – diving in for protection at the least provocation. It almost looked like the coral was breathing fish.

After that nice experience, the rain came back. Apparently the best time to visit Fiji is in June/July but NOT January! We had a nice farewell with songs and leis, then stepped into the boat for a nasty ride. Although it looks calm in this photo, we had 10 ft. swells before our 30 minute boat ride was over. Yikes. Definitely time to leave Fiji!
