This is a picture of our departure from Nukubati.  The couple you see on the left has the enviable job of managing the resort.   When you arrive, and when you leave, several of the natives come to the beach and sing to you.  The boat ride is only about 400 yards from the much larger island you see in the background.  From there, we had a 90 minute cab ride over bumpy dirt roads to the airport, then a 90 minute flight to another island in Fiji, then a 10 hour flight back to LA, followed by a 5 hour flight to Atlanta....then we took Marta close to our house, then another cab ride home.  It took over 24 hours each way.
