17: Today we went on a deep sea fishing trip. Cory caught a walu, a type of tuna. We shared our catch with everyone that night sashimi style, Yummm!
19: Tavoro Waterfalls, Taveuni Island Beyond the lower falls, the trail started to ascend several steps as it went pretty extensively uphill for another half-hour. The trail briefly flattened out so we could go across a rope assisted stream crossing. Then we ascended toward the Middle Falls. The hike required a bit more physical exertion than the Lower Falls. Both falls had wide plunge pools that we swam in.
20: Tavoro Waterfalls (as well as Bouma Falls) are a spectacular series of waterfalls nestled within the Bouma National Heritage Park. The first waterfall, called the Lower Bouma Falls, is 24m tall. The Middle Bouma Falls is said to drop 15m. Upper Bauma Falls is more secluded and one we didn't visit. The Park sits on the eastern side of Taveuni island, which is known as the Garden Island.
21: Melodic and inspiring, the sweet notes rise in layers of hymn-like stanzas. Plenty of practice singing in church!
25: Our snorkeling trip. | Our kayak trip.
28: It's pretty much guaranteed that after the words bula (welcome) and vinaka (thank you), the two words you will hear more often than any others during a visit to Fiji are "Isa Lei." That's because they are the title to the beautiful song of farewell that Fijians sing to departing visitors. Farewell friends! We through a hibiscus flower into the sea, guaranteeing our return.
