Funky Fish Resort, Fiji

Fiji is a country made of over 300 islands but only 100 are inhabited.  Most people live on the 2 main islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu.  Average summer temperatures are 32 degrees and it is very humid.  I am dripping with sweat!

Cloud 9 is a floating restaurant/bar in the middle of nowhere!  The snorkeling is supposed to be very good-

I dove once this afternoon with SubSurface.  They assured me they've never lost a diver so I had nothing to worry about!  We dove at Plantation Pinnacle.  It is a single pinnacle covered in coral, 27 meters high.  There's a swim through and numerous overhangs that are covered with soft corals.  It had a lot of coral on the very top, but not much on the sides, however there were hordes of small fish - all colors.  It's apparently listed in "The World’s Top 100 Dives” Guidebook.  It was very beautiful and this is exactly what it looked like- (thanks to surfdivefiji.com).

Looking forward to tomorrow!
