It was time to head for the hotel at 13:00 and we packed, showered and enjoyed a fish and chip lunch before transferring to the airport and boarding our 16:30 Fiji Link flight to Navi. A Pacific Golden Plover showed well on the airfield and as we took off a total of 12 birds were counted. We arrived on time at 16:40 at Nadi. Then flew to Suva (the capital of Fiji) on the island of Viti Levu departing at 18:40 and landing at 19:10 we then transferred to our hotel Colo-i-suva Rainforest Eco Resort. The six of us shared a lodge building at the hotel with a single shared toilet, three of us in the tiny upstairs room, one on the floor in the sitting room and two sharing a bed in the main bedroom. It was very cosy.
