Beautiful Fulaga

Fulaga is another beautiful Island of the Lau group in Fiji. There are 3 villages in the Island but we have been to one of them only so far. I am still to get the village names properly. It was a raining morning last Monday but we all dressed up on our sarongs and along the path to the village we went, noticing the plants and the new sounds of birds, and the mosquitos which were very annoying. We met Tara, which is the matriarch of our host family. After the sevusevu we sat down in her house where she served us tea and delicious homemade rotis. We also met Sarah, the village nurse, and learned a lot about their customs and the things to do and not do, like not give any alcohol to the young boys. We moved from the village anchorage to the pass where we snorkeled drifting with the current over a forest of corals and small fish. We saw 2 large groupers and one large wrasse, and a small grey reef shark. The water and the air is much cooler here. The water temperature is 24C (about 77F). Too cold for us that are used to the bath warm waters of Hawaii. It has been windy and that adds to the chill factor. Next Sunday we will go back to the village for the Church Service and lunch with Tara. I am sorry but I can't post any photos as we have no internet connection. Aloha to all and until next post.
