A Little Escape to Denarau Island, Fiji

Hello luvs. How was your week? Are you oh-so-happy it’s Friday? Me too. πŸ™‚

I’m sleepy today, feeling dreamy and quiet and finding it quite marvelous to get lost in pictures of beautiful places of warmth and sunshine and solitude. Like this grassy shore on Denarau Island, Fiji dotted with beguiling places to sit and stare out to sea.

I’ve become quite entranced with the ocean of late, reading all sorts of books on underwater research and discovery. I love reading about submersibles, picturing folks bobbing along under the water seeing creatures and shipwrecks and all manner of interesting caves and rock formations. Even thinking about being down there myself makes me feel claustrophobic with a sudden need to take deep gulps of air, but I do like seeing those worlds through others eyes.

My weekend has started off beautifully with a jolly dinner with my grandparents. They showed me old pictures and told me all sorts of great stories about their life in Denmark before immigrating to Canada. I loved it.

I’m really looking forward to good visits with dear friends, sleeping in and buying groceries. I’m craving potatoes something fierce!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and would love to hear what interesting things you’ve been learning about lately. πŸ™‚

Velva - Fiji, I can only imagine the warm sand, warm water and sun. I can see why you feel “sleepy” “dreamy” I would too πŸ™‚

We are getting ready to plan a short trip to New Orleans. Should be fun.

You need to find potatoes, soon.


Andi of My Beautiful Adventures - I have ALWAYS said that humans are supposed to be able to breath underwater. It’s such a magical world down there! I can’t get enough of it!!! Have a gorgeous weekend.

LindyLouMac - Will your potato craving be in the form of French Fries I wonder? I love the fact you are looking at old photos with your grandparents, so important to pass on knowledge to the next generation.
I love these photos, the pergola buildings are they used for weddings?

Karen - Fiji sounds perfect right now (or really any time!). I love your pics from Australia, especially the bush country. Beautiful! I hope you’ll spoil us with more, Krista. Have a wonderful weekend! πŸ™‚

Joanne - I really wish I were in Fiji right now. Or stuffing myself full of some crispy potatoes. Hope you have a great weekend love!

Lael Hazan - How tranquil and BEAUTIFUL, truly lovely. Although, I’m certainly not complaining. Today we are having a perfect weather day here in Sarasota Florida. It started out a bit crisp in the morning and will become perfect shorts and T-shirt weather by the afternoon. This is the weather for which people move to our paradise.

Honeymoon India - loves the snaps….
