|The elders said to yell if I wanted them to stop to take pictures, |
so of course I yelled stop when I saw some flowers I haven't seen before
|This flower was hanging down from a tree we sat under while we waited for the Sherry's to pick us up.|

|This is one of many lava flows we saw in the deeper crevices along the road . |
When it rains hard it turns into a small stream flowing down to the ocean.

|These blooms fell from a tree and smelled delicious.|
|Fruit bats hanging in the tree by hotel.|
|One of the landlords we spoke to about a new flat we need loves to garden and took us through his garden to see the flat. We went by this cute little one day old goat.|
|View of hotel from the jetty.|
|Hunting for a flat in Navuna. Inside the flat was an old display case full of Cowrie shells.They're very shiny, but these have a bit of dust on them.|
|A flat that is used part time by the elders and is next to the church in Quelini (pronounced Ga lean e) |
Found a lot of mud wasp nests that we need to hire someone to remove.
|This is the tallest Dalo plant I've seen, about 8 feet tall. Sherry's told us that the bigger Dalo you see growing along the road isn't edible, but the smaller sucker plants are separated and replanted for food by the native people.|

|The flat, that is often used by the RS sisters when the elders aren't in the village using the flat.|
|I thought maybe there might be some post cards in the two islands we visited since they have |
some pretty coral beds around them, but this shot from the airplane will have to do.
I did buy one postcard of the hotel we stayed at and it cost $2.00!
|The house building next door is coming right along|
|This is a Pomelo I brought back from Taveuni,|
a little like a grapefruit with a twist and a lot bigger!
|Saturday we were invited to join some senior missionaries for our first snorkeling experience.|
|We fit 10 of us in a small boat, and I marveled how one of the two men who drove the boat |
stood up the whole time, he saw me taking a picture and of course posed for me.
