What a fun filled week here at the lodge with something on offer for everyone! Surf was pumping on our last day thanks to that magical alignment of unexpected wave and wind conditions that you and your mates dream about. It was completely unexpected andwasn't forecasted; that's just one benefit of living in the middle of an ocean - anything can happen.
We took a joint surf/leisure trip down to Middles with two vans carrying paddle boards, snorkels, a kayak, surfboards, drinks, lunch and a bunch of guests itching for a great time. We fondly call these trips our "adventure picnics", and they never leave our search for excitement unquenched. Anytime you have that many fun activities combined with delicious food (not to mention our own beach!), it's impossible not to have a good time.
The cultural tour was a hit as usual, complete with some basket and mat weaving, a Samoan buffet, tapa demonstration and, of course, dancing. The lodge really transformed into a fun-filled family friendly destination this week which was a great pleasure to see. Picture families exploring the options of our lagoon followed by an early kids dinner and activities while the adults enjoy happy hour cocktails. In other words, the good life.
