Setting out on full lagoon tour

Yesterday we had a fantastic day out with visits to various parts of the lagoon and a full trip around the island.

Almost shaped like a thingie

Eating at the famous Bloody Mary's, where the entrance displays a lot of celebrity names like Johnny Depp, Harrison Ford, Pamela Anderson and even Alex Rosen, we could not help to notice this wall sculpture that Baldrick from Black Adder definitely would have described as 'a turnip almost shaped like a thingie'. So not only the female anatomy that is on display hereHave wood

First swim in Pacific

Just back from cycling 90_WP_20160919_17_12_59_Pro.jpg to the beach and our first swim in the lagoon of Bora Bora. This night we dine where Raquel Welsh and Harrison Ford has been before us at Bloody Mary's http://bloodymarys.com

And tomorrow a full day boat trip around the lagoon including swimming with sharks and stingrays and lunch on a private island. Life is pretty good.
