A break from Suva!

On Wednesday mum, dad, Jem the kids and I headed off up the coast to Sigatoka to a lovely little place called Bedarra Beach Inn.  We decided it would be nice to show mum and dad some nicer areas of Fiji. 

Unfortunately on Tuesday afternoon the rain started.  It rained all night and was still raining when we woke at 6am to catch our coach.  It rained all the way there and for the rest of the day.  We went into Sigatoka town to look around.  It was nice apart from all the Aussie’s!  The weather was awful and surprisingly cold.

On Thursday the weather improved so Jem took the kids snorkelling and mum and I went for a walk along the beach.  We got to swim in the pool and in the afternoon we went to Kula Rainforest Park.  What a great experience.  We got to hold small snakes and larger Iguana’s.  We walked through enclosures with big parrots and got to see bats up close!  Dad also spotted a giant spider hanging from the power lines.  He saw it from the ground so you can imagine how big it was.  I had a quick look!


The best part of the whole trip was the comfy bed.  I haven’t had a good sleep since I got here.  Still really tired but it was soooooo good – and a hot shower!

We arrived back in Suva today and said goodbye to mum and dad and headed home.  We will be seeing Dad again very soon – as he lost is passport and is heading back here now!

Check out the Fijian clock!
