a very late lunch after our trip to to sua, we stopped at a resort called soletoga (which apparently translated to english means "no tongans"... random) right on the ocean (there isn't much that isn't right on the ocean here haha) very modern with an island feel to the main building. it looked as though it would be a lovely place to stay too! the staff were very attentive and the food was delicious.
the view from our table... what a hard life.
joseph was wide awake and loving the cuddles from everyone, while madeline was so exhausted that she slept the entire way through lunch. poor love, her sleep is all out of whack still, she's in a strange place, new things, new people, so much to see... i have to keep reminding myself that she is only 3 years old and the attitude and temper are mostly due to the above - and the fact that it's just so hot! we've come from it being still fairly cold... straight into heat and humidity.
we had a lovely lunch and then a little stroll. doug made a few cracks about us staying here next time we come back... who knows, there is always the chance of winning the lottery, although how one would win without purchasing a ticket is beyond me.
maddie eventually joined us back in the real world and was thrilled to see that someone had ordered her some chips. what a good day it is when your children are easily pleased.
next stop - lupesina...
