Sat around all morning, got on a ferry to Oarsmans bay at 11am, Oarsman have a time change for daylight saving, strange, 1 hour ahead than the rest of Fiji. Cloudy so couple of drinks with Canadian guy called Neil, donner was okay sit down 3 course meal. Met Sarah and Aaron from Oz, sat up drinking with Neil, not really in the mood so not a late one. Beach is Beautiful and sea is crystal clear, load sof hammocks, dorm has 13 beds, nothing special and not too bad...oh was quizz night our table won a sunset cruise for tomorow night...
Think I am getting into the swing of doing nothing.......Breakfast, Hammock with book till lunch, then hammock with book till 6, Sunset cruise, cloudy to start but ended up with a fab sunset, then dinner followed by entertainment of Limbo Dancing and Stick dancing, everyone joined in so really quiet fun, no alcohol then, was left limbo dancing with just kids, did better than I thought I would!
Swam, sunbathed, read book, lunch, sunbathed and read book, shower, dinner and tonights entertainment was crab racing.
Another strenuous day of sunbathing & reading, interuted only by lunch! Tonights entertainment was International Night, each country was to get up and do some sort of entertainment.
Australia - Dodgy song, USA - even though 3 americans, only 1 got up, anyway did some dodgy dancing, NZ - Crap did nothing, Scotland - Sandy had everyone up singing Old Lang Syne and the querky english family saved the day for the UK - 3 brothers did a whole sketch on sharing toothbrushes, really funny but very foul and one of them being a bit of a comedian, did a whole sketch on immitating peoples laughs.
Last full day at Oarsman Bay, got to do something other than lying on my backside and reading, so swam after breakfast, then sunbathed and finished book (well sunbathed when sun was out, it kept clouding over today) then for the first time I went snorkling which was pretty cool, loads of fish but no big ones...in the evening it was Lovo night, all traditional Fijian food and the staff entertained us with local song and dance, all good fun, then got involved i Kava for the 1st time, tastes like muddy water, tongue went a bit numb and got a bit light headed but was washing it down with Rum, so not sure what was having which effect, late night for the islands anyway...12.30!!!
