Day 36 – March 6 – Friday – Dravuni, Fiji

Day 36 – March 6 – Friday – Dravuni, Fiji

Dravuni is a very small Fijian island, directly south of the main island of Fiji.  When I say “small”, I mean tiny – perhaps a half mile long, 200 acres in size.

Dravuni is a very small Fijian island, directly south of the main island of Fiji.  When I say “small”, I mean tiny – perhaps a half mile long, 200 acres in size.

Its most prominent construction is a pier big enough to handle our tenders.  Dravuni has about two hundred inhabitants and they all turned out to welcome us.

As soon as we got on shore, Dan and Zaga took off on a hike toward the peak at the south side of the island.

There are differing stories about who made it how far up the trail.

The less athletic members of our party, me and Sally, opted for some beach time.

Sally and I paid a local boat driver for a ride around the island – a complete circumnavigation in just 20 minutes.

Upon our return, I fell getting out of the boat, which made for a soggy trip back to the ship.

Here is a view of the hill Dan and Zaga were scaling.
