I didn’t have this photo lined up for Tree Squares, but when I saw Becky’s ‘palm trees’ post, and the quote “May you never be too busy to stop and breathe under a palm tree”, I just had to post this. Breathing under a palm tree is all well and good — but first, check what’s up that tree!
What more do you need for the perfect Fiji sunset? (Ooh, I know, a cocktail!)
Isn’t this just the ideal tropical island view? Shot from the tall ship ‘Tenacious’ in June 2016.
In Suva (the capital of Fiji), there is a lovely garden named in honour of Sir John Bates Thurston, governor between February 1888 and March 1897. While the lawns, trees and plants are well looked after, the monuments and fountains have had a tougher time. This fountain must have been very impressive when it was new and the basin was full of water. I can imagine children running through the water on a hot day, splashing each other and laughing with glee.
