Just back from an overnight trip to Caqalai, a tiny, blissful desert island in Fiji. I’ve had a wonderful twenty-four hours of swimming, bonfires on the beach and delicious fish to eat before a rather bumpy boat ride back to the mainland.
I stayed in a very cosy “bure” overlooking the beach.
I tried snorkeling for the first time in Caqalai, which I loved – the coral was absolutely beautiful as were the tiny, luminous, multi-coloured fish and inky blue starfish everywhere.
The most exciting bit of the trip was the moment at 6.30am this morning when a shark swam right past me! I was reasonably terrified (although apparently the type of shark I saw is a friendly shark that doesn’t eat people) but haven’t stopped talking about it since . . .
Off for further island adventures this weekend in the Yasawas, so I’ll post more pictures soon. Happy Jubilee Weekend everyone!
