Beautiful Solomon Islands

This is the first opportunity I have had to sit down and post some photos of our time here.  We have been running around having lots of meetings and chasing people who work on "Solomons time" - no watches and no timetable really!     Hence we are making slow progress with our quest to build a pre school in the Koa Valley .... however we have made some progress which is good!!    We have managed to find time to get down to the markets to purchase fresh fruit and flowers ....

 These are some of the smiling children from the Koa Valley on the steps of the St John the Baptist Church there.

More beautiful and colourful flowers in the markets in Honiara!

Absolutely spectacular colours  -  perhaps they would make a fantastic embroidery!

And David took his Ipad for work while we are here and took some photos of the children and then showed them the video - they thought it was great fun to see themselves on film!   Such gorgeous children!!


  1. what great pictures those kids sure are beautiful and very happy! Hope you have a wonderful season thanks for sharing
