We had to go pick up a bike.out in the bush and drove on this dirt road that was so full of deep pot holes that we were bouncing around in the van we borrowed pretty good, so I grabbed the loop and leaned forward to save my back.
|This is how dirty the truck was. The car wash area has two workers with a power washer and to the |
back of the lot were some young men working on cars with old sheds and car parts.
|Living space where we'll put table and chairs for studying. The two bedrooms are painted a bright pink.|
|The Landlord is Indian and his wife Fijian and this is their cute little daughter|
|Outside of the sister's new flat.|
|We drove down to Savusavu from Labasa that afternoon after signing a contract for the sister's flat|
|We're staying in the same hotel we did last time. There seem to be more sail boats in the lagoon this time.|
|Elder Hogge flew up by himself to arrange the contract for this flat, and Elder Trent was given the assignment to find someone who would make some drapes. He did a great job, I think we ought to have more Elders find drape makers.|
|As we were leaving I saw this, you may remember it was hanging above a door entrance at the "purple palace" They brought it to the new place and it's now decorating the porch!|
|Elder Trent, Read, Hogge, ---|
|View from our hotel room|
|From the beautiful view pictures you may think we're spoiled, but we still have to iron our clothes on a table with a folded sheet, there's no tv in the room, and the showers are cold, but it does have a wall unit air conditioner...Yes!|
|We shopped for some things the flats needed and I took this picture of town. The poles in the|
background are the masts of all the sailboats docked at a favorite hang restaurant.
|Tide is out|
|flowers on the shoreline|
|I went shell hunting for a few minutes while elder Hogge tried to get a phone signal to call Elder's on another remote island. I was excited to find a small piece of the deep red coral. There is such a beautiful variety of shells in Fiji|
|There are so many steep mountains on this island, that the only flat space is along the outer perimeter of the island. |
I tried to capture the depth with this picture. Each of the 5 houses is built on a higher level than the one below it.
|We had lunch on Saturday with the Howard's (welfare couple serving 6 months here) |
They even had homemade ice cream for dessert, it was such a treat.
|Flowers at the side of the new flat Howard's found to live in.|
|unusual bush in their yard. Green leaves, white leaves (look kind of like leaves on a poinsetta) and yellow star stamins.|
|laundry area outside the Howard's bathroom, I was impressed with how nice the tile floor was.|
|Beautiful wood floor..Elder and Sister Howard|
|I've found a kindred spirit, sister Howard loves shell like I do.|
