1st Year Aniverssary, Sandy Beaches

Well today is officially our first year anniversary of being married, but we spent yesterday celebrating.  It wasn’t much, but it was absolutely perfect.  First of all, those who were at our wedding, can you believe that it’s already been a year since we were on the beach together?

At any rate we made arrangements to go to Sandy Beaches, which is a very small, quiet, and expensive resort on the north end of the next island north of Lifuka called Foa.  It’s run by a really nice German guy named Boris.  He usually only likes for his guests to be able to enjoy the beach there, but he made an exception for us. We started the roughly 6 – 8 mile bike ride in the morning and rode through the beautiful tropical vegetation we have grown accustomed to here.  There was one point where we started through a huge insect swarm only to realize half way through that it was a swarm of honey bees, which scared me to no end once I realized it.  Being surrounded by thousands of bees is not a pleasant feeling.

At any rate once we arrived at the resort we realized that there was almost no one staying there at this particular day so we had the place to ourselves.  We ordered  gigantic fishburgers and fries and some vegi spring rolls and a couple of beers.  It’s a rare treat to be able to have any of those things here because food is expensive and we make next to nothing.

We enjoyed the rest of the  day on the beach and then had a leisurely ride home right before sunset.  It was awesome.  Check out the pictures on page 2 of 2008 pictures.
