A dicey boat ride

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 [...]

Fiji Treehouse

We're on the deck waiving from our treehouse, which was amazing and thankfully very dry, given all the rain. It came equiped with some serious bug spray (which we didn't have to use) and mosquito [...]

Rain rain go away

Quick Kayak trip

BULA!

We took this little plane (Mike estimated about 30 years old) through a nasty storm to our island. On takeoff, we had water streaming from seams in the ceiling.

Christmas Island

A surprise stopover on the way to Fiji. Captain Cook arrived here on Christmas Eve, hence the name. Anyone remember the Bing Crosby song - Christmas Island? Santa sails in with your presents in a [...]
