Sunset (and my nose on the left)

This was taken on my phone, not a particularly good photo, but quite a bit of time was spent doing this.


  1. I'm going to give you two comments.

    Politically Correct comment:
    It looks like you had a great time. The weather looks great, the beaches sandy and it all looks so relaxing. Glad you had a lovely time.

    What most of us are thinking:

    I hate your guts for having just spent a week in an Island Paradise while I went to work the cold...

    You know I'm just kidding right? I really am glad you got to have fun in the sun while I worked...

  2. Wow, yes, very jealous now!
    The colours are so vivid, its lovely. And the details of the room, the ceiling is amazing. I expect it to inspire your crafting in a project one day!

  3. Lovely photographs Marg!
    Looks so relaxing! x

  4. Thank you so much for posting these! Fiji looks just as exotic as it sounds. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy such a beautiful place.

  5. What a wonderful way to spend a vacation! I hope you were able to relax. I am sure all the alcohol helped you relax! Did you even think about us in the cold and rain? Love you even if you didn't!

  6. I can see why they call it paradise!
