|We got out of our car Friday morning and there was a group of Cathoic paritioiners going down the street singing a hymn in Fijian the one word I could make out was Gethsemane, , it was a nice way to start our day.|
|Annie and Tom Shery have gone home, they were assigned to the west side of our island and then finished inTaveuni,. They will be missed. They have a wonderful blog if anyone wants to know what Fiji is like visit their blog at annietom.blogspot.com|
|This is a fascinating thing you see in Fiji, these are small Mulberry trees the green is the branches with leaves and the tangle of brown sticks are roots that grow from the branches down to the water source.|

|Elder Hogge and Elder Magoon|
|Sister Magoon, and I in their front room, I noticed all the family pictures |
and she loved to telling me about each of her children and grandchildren.
|We all walked out quite a distance from the shore (water very shallow with tide out)|
while the small boat let out sections of the net, then we all pulled a rope that gathered the fish in
|Elder Hogge the maverick in our group, wanted to do his own thing. He tried standing still until a|
fish came between his hands and tried to catch it with his bare hands, but alas it got away... and it was this big.
|Matthew had the right idea, he relaxed in the boat while we fished.|
|Big fish a mackerel maybe, two thin fish needle nose plus some small silver fish.|

|This baracuda was the biggerst catch of the day on the second round of net fishing|
|We even caught a good size gold fish. |
This lagoon was the funnest place to find seashells too. I found some small sand dollars, a
nice change from the bits and pieces of white coral one usually finds.
