Dreamy white beach

Do not forget your sunhat and sunscreen here, as beneath the sunny skies the sun was very hot.
We only had one day that it  rained and that was such a downpour. We were taking the boat over to the mainland of Vaitape, when the heavens opened and  we were all handed a little box, in it was a plastic poncho, which we were very grateful for this to keep our clothes dry.
The tropical rain storm did not last long  and the bright sun came out again and everything was a little steamy for a while.

The hibiscus and bougainvillea flowers made a pretty show around the gardens of the resort

The infinity pool was lovely    
I want to thank everyone for visiting and the lovely comments you leave, it makes me happy.
Also many thanks to new followers.
I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week

  42. Carolyn, You are so lucky to be entering into spring like weather!!!
    Your pics are so pretty.

    The leaves on our trees are nearly all blown off and the cold wind is blowing in. I will visit your place in blogland often during our cold winter months. It is refreshing to see flowers and beautiful beaches.
