Geelong Eastern Beach

from w
We went to a New Year's Eve party at a beautiful home above Eastern Beach. It was a fundraising party for assisting the building of a Methodist church somewhere between Lautoka and Nadi so I expect they raised $500 so far. It was about 42 degrees so went out on the balcony for a couple of hours.

This morning we went for a swim at Eastern Beach about 10a.m. It was still over 30 degrees but heading for a change, thank goodness. As we drove through Eastern Gardens the sea had peculiar stripes on it. Not green as I depicted it but dark blue and light blue. Not kelp, not sandbars, just strange stripes.

Four bus-loads of Cook Islanders arrived and set up camp next to us with tents, eskies of food, large mats. Each bus had a trailer for the food! They had come from Melbourne from their Chadstone Community church. A group os Samoans were singing behind us. It really felt like it was a Pacific New Year party!
