Day 2 Fiji by Kt

Having slept for England, literally, we set off the next day to the hostel where we would spend the next 10 days. A 2 hour drive, in Harry shuttle, was surprisingly delightful. Passing through villages and lush greenery, we eventually reached the Beachouse. It's pretty blooming lovely, really. All set in lush tropical gardens, our room is large, has a massive bed and 2 extra singles and has a gorgeous outside bathroom. Slightly disconcerted by the toilet with no actual door, but ur not overlooked so just get used to it.
A minute or so walk to the bar, out onto a decked area with a small pool and the beach at the end of it. Can't believe this is a hostel. Better than any bland hotel any day.
We had a quiet afternoon - a storm came in was oddly lovely, considering my usual adversity to rain. It was still warm and we sat drinking beer under cover, looking at the stormy sea. And free afternoon tea everyday - scones made with coconut milk - nuff said!!!
In the evening we sat on a jetty overlooking the beach, taking in the view. Mark jumped down to investigate the speedy crabs we could see flitting about. He then decided to have a go on the swing that hung over the sea, from a rope tied to a huge palm tree. He'd been eyeing that up all day, but unfortunately the slight, girls that had been sitting on it thus far were not quite in marks league weight wise and we basically dunked himself, fully clothed into the sea. I didn't laugh. I was duly sympathetic - obviously!!
