Happy New Year in Fiji!

Happy New Year everyone! A little late I know, but I have decided this is the way every new year should start! We joined two of our children and their partners on a last minute holiday to the beautiful Fijian island of Tavarua! It was spectacular as you can see.

These beautiful little bures were dotted around the island - some with hammocks so we could just laze about and read - which we did a lot of!

Tavarua is renowned for a couple of the best surfing breaks in the world which is why the children and their partners were there - we enjoyed an afternoon out on the reef in a long boat watching them surf the famous "Cloudbreaks" surfing spot - just a 5 minute ride from Tavarua Island!

And the view from the restaurant over the top of the swimming pool and out to the "Restaurants" break was what we enjoyed every breakfast, lunch and dinner! Six days was not long enough though and we are looking forward to going back with the whole family maybe next year! Now I really must get into some stitching for 2010! I hope 2010 is a wonderful year for you all - my year has certainly been spectacular so far! Enjoy and smile!


  1. It certainly looks like heaven!!!!! What a wonderful place. Happy New year to you too.
