Bora Bora


Hi friends, 16.28S 151.46W Bora Bora.  It is so beautiful. The water is like glass.  We anchored by a motu and didn't get much wind last night,  so it was rather warm in the boat. We anchored by Francis (Lisa & Dave) and we are in front of the new hotel,  Pearl Beach - it must be very expensive.

We went ashore for dessert with Francis. Dan and I had chocolate cake with ice cream, it was gormet style. There was a flower with syrup on the plate and the cake was like a cupcake with chocolate gooey filling.  The ice cream had a chocolate wafer and mint sprig on it, it was very good at $1400 cfp Franks.   Dan had a coke and I had a glass of wine.  Dan's coke was 6.00, the total was $3415.

After that we toured the place. They have several huts over the water and a pool and a sandy beach. There was also a library with a foos ball and pool table there. We're planning to snorkel today. Till Later Dan & Sandy
