Day 9: Moorea
Well... they got this one right! What a lovely place. The people are very friendly, and it was so beautiful. I took lots of pictures, and it's hard to decide which ones to share today. We came here with no preconceived notion and it was everything we thought yesterday should have been. The islands have redeemed themselves!
And look what we found... those huts over the water that we thought would be in Tahiti. Oh, and also the brilliant blue water that we didn't see yesterday.
The ship was anchored off the shore a ways as there is no pier here. We were taken to shore in "tender boats".
We decided to take a bus tour again. We circled the island and saw so many gorgeous beaches and other interesting sights. We got some beach time and the water was so warm and nice. It was a wonderful experience. I think the photos say it all...
