    Moorea, Society Islands

    January 17, 2015 in French Polynesia ⋅ ⛅ 75 °F

    We sailed into Moorea this morning and it is evrerything that you would envision French Polynesia as. It is dramatically mountainous and the water is crystal clear. BTW, as we were sailing here, the captain's report was that the ocean was 3 miles deep. That's a little too much to comprehend while on vacation.
    Moorea is the island that "Bali Hai" refers to.
    We spent the day doing the best snorkeling
    we have ever done. The colors of the coral were fantastic and the fish are different than
    any we have seen before. We also learned that the sun is unforgiving here no matter how much sunscreen you have on.
    We sailed to Papeete, Tahiti this evening and will shop at the local market tomorrow.
