After finishing the competitive part of their foreign tour with a 3-1 record, the Rams have two days to enjoy the tropical paradise of Fiji before heading home. Freshman Danielle Burns recaps Sunday, when the Rams sailed to Beachcomber Island for a day of fun in the sun.
The view from the shores of Beachcomber Island
Hello! Today was another unforgettable day here in Fiji.
It started with an early wake up call to make sure no missed the 9 am boat
to the island resort. The boat ride was about thirty minutes long and
filled with breathtaking views of the smaller island. Looking out in
the water was unreal, I have never seen water that blue before.
finally reached the island we were greeted by smiling faces and a
welcoming song. Our host then seated us to inform us of all the fun
activities we could do. There were so many things to chose from.
group of people went snorkeling off the side of the island and saw
blue star fish. The guide said there was an octopus too but sadly no one
A lot of the girls attempted to hold on for dear life as they
rode the banana boat, and even though they were tossed into the ocean
numerous times, they really enjoyed the experience.
kayaking, and parasailing were other things to do.
Some opted out of
activities and instead take full advantage of their day off by soaking
up some sun.
Everyone enjoyed a delicious barbecue lunch served by the
staff. Once everyone was fed, the beach quickly filled up with bodies laying down
trying to catch a quick nap. It was only a few hours later when we had
to pick up our stuff to head back on the boat.
The ride back was
definitely a rocky one. All the waves were tossing us everywhere making
the ride back seem longer than before. But we made it back safe and
sound. After washing all the seaweed, salt water, and sand off our
bodies, we dressed up for a team dinner to celebrate Taryn's birthday.
Today was phenomenal and I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
