Malolo Diving, Fiji

This map shows the numerous dive sites in the area-

The last 3 days I dove 5 times at #23 Supermarket, #26 Charlie's Reef, # 34 Wilkies Passage # 35 Plantation Pinnacle and #31 Namotu Wall.  I saw lots - turtles, an eagle Ray, trumpet fish, pipe fish, banner fish, sharks- 1.5 meters long!, huge trigger fish, an octopus!!! My first ever!! Barracuda, hard and soft coral, etc.  It was great...so colorful.
Here is Dels, our dive master and me as we approach one of the many private islands/resorts-

A speciality of the area is vakalolo, which is fish, often dolphin fish aka mahi mahi, with vegetables and casava, served in a coconut cream sauce.  Delicious!

I am off to Honolulu tomorrow for a few days.  Looking forward to a couple more dives, hopefully a wreck, before it is back to the cold 😢

It rained a lot during the night and this morning, flooding through the patio doors into the living room!  At 10:30, we headed to Essauouira...
