A Week in Fiji – A Photo Journal

It turns out that everything I was told about a Fiji vacation is true:  it really is relaxing to the max, the people really are beautiful and welcoming, and yes yes yes they really do love kids.  Even the clear turquoise shorelines hemmed by coconut palms and golden sand are real too.  At least that’s how we found them on the Coral Coast and more specifically the Warwick Fiji Resort where my husband, myself and our 4 young children spent a gloriously decadent week.
