12 Jan 2018 – A Much Needed Break

Although I have been spending the last few days in paradise; the exhaustion from all of our previous dives has finally caught up to me. The other day I only participated in our first dive and headed back early; today I stayed back entirely to rest up so I can enjoy our final week in Fiji to its fullest.

Last night our class helped to prepare a Fijian dinner for the resort and in the process collected a large amount of coconuts. I have been working on cleaning up the coconut enough to use as a cup or bowl once back home by scraping off the outter fuzz and shaving out the inner white part of the coconut.

Current progress on my coconut bowl.

Now to rest up and relax for the rest of the day as I wait for the rest of the class to return.

  1. Reminds me of the time we purchased a coconut for you to drink in Key West. Is the Matava fresh coconut milk better than the Florida fresh coconut milk? Love reading all the blogs about this exciting adventure.

  2. I really like the idea of turning a coconut into a souvenir bowl. It’s not only something you can actually use but it’s also symbolic of something you did on your trip.
