Visiting Granny and Grandpa - Taveuni, Diwali, Waterslides and Ping Pong

My parents spend part of the year in Taveuni so we met up with them again in Savusavu and sailed over to Taveuni.  First stop was the lovely, and just rebuilt after cyclone Winston, Paradise Resort. The next day we sailed up to the north of Taveuni so my parents could pick up their truck and open up their place on the hill.  The kids lived ashore and helped at the house while Liz, Benjamin and I commuted back and forth daily.

Of course, the local kids go down standing up.

We were honoured to be able to share Diwali with my parent's neighbours.
