Under the Blue Lagoon
21 October 2008 | Blue Lagoon, Yasawa Islands, Fiji
We arrived on Friday--today is Wednesday--you'd think we like it here! Blue water, protected anchorage, not too crowded and a nearby resort for meals out. We've been to six or seven great snorkeling sites, so today we tried a dive. First time on this trip, as the Admiral has trouble clearing her ears, and can slow a group down. But no problem today; perhaps all the snorkeling and free diving has helped. We were at 35 to 50' along a wall. Amazing variety of corals and reef fishes, one lonely black tip shark, and a large turtle that zoomed by. So wonderful we'll have to do it again. Our friends on Destiny have left the anchorage but we met a nice couple from Seattle on holiday at the resort, so we've not lacked for company. But the Yasawa's have lots of nice anchorages to be explored, so we'll move on soon.
