Day Four? Already? Yes, it went that fast, especially since we lost a day going over and spent more than a day in airplanes and airports…ha!
Let's see what did we do?
How about eggs made to order? These guys cooked for hours!
Then off to the Hospitality room to toss more bean bags and get a prize.
My flip flops all alone on the chair..well that might be bird poop beside them…
…I thought I had a better picture of the birds than this, these guys were fast to get your food if you left it unattended at any time.
We finally hit the pool and we were antsy to try out the new waterproof camera.
Here goes nothing…well not exactly nothing $$…but whew, it works!
Didn't realize I puffed up my cheeks underwater…not like I hold air in them…ha!
Here is Lorri Heiling, Michelle Zindorf and I. Lorri had been in FLA so she had a great base tan compared to Michelle and I.
We were even doing aeorbics in the pool.
That was fun. I lost 1 pound while I was gone, Jeff gained 5. We walked a lot, so now that we are back home, he will lose 8 and I will gain 5.
I finally gave up on the crazy hair and bought a hat. Saved my face from burning…but I had to remember to put sunscreen on my ears.
I think we had New Zealand Ice Cream every day. It was yummy!
Michelle and Russ are loving it too. I so enjoyed getting to know them better, they are a hoot and Michelle has chickens so we had lots to talk about. Speaking of chickens thought these were interesting.
I did not buy them to try them.
Love this one, would be neat to have by the coop, the girls were running around tonight and when they hear me open the back door they run so fast. So then there was shopping, swimming, napping and then we decided we would go to supper. My sweet friend Sherri Peters and her hilarious husband Mike wanted to go to get lobster…well Mike did, so he heard this place was good.
I loved their sign and wanted a t-shirt and they didn't sell them…bummer. I love that fish.
So anyway Mike ordered Lobster, and Jeff wanted to try the Mud Crabs, the waitress was adorable and really was smart in how to order, Jeff wanted his crabs fried and she was like that is not the best way, and suggested steamed. So then food slowly comes to the table…when they say Fiji time, they mean Fi..ji…tim…e….
Notice anything missing? Well neither of them got melted butter, or cracking tools. Seems the people putting the food on the plates were not as knowledgable as the waitress??? I think they were just too busy to keep up. Jeff was wacking his with a spoon and we were all trying not to laugh. Three times I had to go ask for tools and melted butter (they sent over little tiny ones that would not crack them at all) when I went back and asked again and said Mud Crabs the guy was like "oh Mud Crabs" and then they brought over monster crackers.
I had ordered fries as I was going to share Jeff's Crab, but after all this time they were cold and not worth it I thought, I mean heck my fries were easy, pick it up, dip in ketchup, eat! Voila!
Here's Jeff and his crazy supper.
He kept wanting me to take pictures, cause it was dark he couldn't see what he was doing but the flash helped.
He had crab and butter all over his hands.
Dripping down his chin, I mean if this was in the US we would have sent it back cause it was not cheap, but we were in Fiji with great friends, and well the entertainment was hilarious.
Mike was having a grand old time with his lobster too. Remind me to never order a whole lobster…it had eyes and everything.
Then we waited for our check….forever and then headed back to the hotel, it was pillow gifts time.
I got a cute hat and Jeff got an awesome back pack. He loves it.
Then it was bedtime. What a great day. Will continue on with the story tomorrow.
Just a note: I have stamp clubs (Local and Long Distance) starting in June, let me know if you want more information.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in.

Can't believe you only had FRIES!! – but then I guess it's not so hard to believe – ha! – My Hailee (granddaughter) sat at another table when we took her for lobster (she had chicken) because she couldn't stand looking at the eyes!! You two have a few things in common….xoxo

Great pictures and I'm loving the Fiji language lessons! But I have a question…after all that work on the Mud Crabs, was it worth it Jeff? 🙂
