The Fijians are a friendly bunch, giving off a sense of sincere joy to make your acquaintance. The service staff seem to lack an expectation of a gratuity, providing a refreshing appearance that they want to make your as stay enjoyable as possible.
The last part of the road to the resort was unpaved and laden with potholes, so the driver much to our surprise turned off the road and opted to drive along the wet sandy beach instead. When finally arriving at the resort, it had a decidedly rural feel to it. All the surrounding land, except for the other resorts around, was mostly overgrown with vegetation. The diving was absolutely spectacular. With sea life that is similar but still very unique to anything I have seen on my other dive adventures. I got to see carpet anemones with clown fish swimming in and out. Something I have always loved to watch, but never before was able to see in the wild. On our second dive, Dennis lost his dive camera after taking about 30 photos, it drifted away, maybe due to a faulty strap. In any case, Dennis spent the rest of the dive looking for it, trying to retrace his movements, but to no avail. So, alas, up to this point there are no underwater photos. However all is not lost. When we were exploring the town of Nadi, we ran across a photo shop, and they had a very nice Olympus and underwater housing. It was a good price, so Dennis bought it and is now back in business. Hopefully we will have some pictures when we get to Bali, our next dive location. Until then we are on to Sydney and Melbourne.
