Great Barrier Reef is losing it’s Coral

According to Singularity Blog the reef has lost half it’s coral over the last 27 years!  Some of it is due to warming but also hurtful is the Crown of thorns starfish.  When we were in the Drawaqa Island area we did what everyone does there – see the Mantarays!  While our friend Chris was snorkeling he made some great underwater photos that day and discovered a Crown of thorns that he was able to dislodge and our boatman Bette made quick work of.  We hope that Fiji doesn’t lose its valuable coral!

More Happy Fijians

When we were on Nacula we had the opportunity to visit the nearby village and once again the natural beauty of the people came out almost immediately.

Here is a triptych of village kids that show their warmth and easy expressions and a wonder shot of a little girl all dressed up listening intently to her father.

Fiji’s best asset – the people!

The Yasawa Islands are full of beautiful beaches and wonderful scenery but the best part of the islands are the people.
They are always smiling, very happy and quite content in their paradise. They are very family oriented, here is a photo of a baby being cared for by his mother and her mother.

The Blue Lagoon

Here is an overview of the upper Yasawa Islands from near the top of Nacula – what a view.

The snorkeling is very good, plenty to see and very calm water.

The resort below is the new Blue Lagoon resort.  Highly recommended!
