Sunday Selections: The Fiji Me edition

I'm linking up with the lovely Frogpondsrock, for her Sunday Selections linky, this week hosted by her daughter Veronica (Sleepness Nights).

The idea is to share any photos you just happen to have sitting on your computer's hard drive.

This week I've decided to share some happy snaps from the family holiday the kids and I enjoyed in Fiji late last year.

It was our first big holiday as a single parent family, and because Fijians love kids, we all got a break.

We travelled at the same time as a girlfriend and her children and extended family, which made the time even more special. We were always running into someone to snorkel or hang out with, and the kids always had playmates nearby. But the resort was big enough that we could do our own thing when we wanted to as well.

I got pampered, the kids were treated like royalty, and we can't wait to return.

Lunch time. Taking in the view at the poolside cafe at the Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa, the first place we stayed during our holiday.

Chase making friends with a resort kitteh

Beachcombing

We went a little nutty ...

And shopped for bargains

I did my best to avoid the sea snakes ... but the kids were fascinated!

Some parents really should supervise their children better ...Ahem.

Mini-golf by the sea ...

Harmonie with two of her pet coconuts. Don't ask. She is delivering evil looks at the lovely activities guide who offered to split them for her and help her turn them into boats. She was horrified he wanted to 'kill' her pets!

And having her braided at one of the local shops

Getting a drink was easy ...

Holidays can be SO exhausting ...

Oh Fiji, how we miss you ...

Maid In Australia travelled to Fiji with the assistance of Tourism Fiji and Air Pacific Fiji. She booked and paid for her accommodation for her family at the Warwick.

I love Fiji too. We had a great family holiday there two years ago staying at a resort on Denarau. It looks like you had an incredible break and that your children loved it. I hope you'll be able to enjoy another holiday there soon.

Was that Sonasali resort?

It was perfect. And Madam Bipolar, it was The Warwick Fiji Resort and Spa. But I've heard Sonasali is awesome too!
