    Somewhere in the South Pacific

    January 22, 2015, South Pacific Ocean ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Hey, what happened to Wednesday? We crossed the International dateline last night and Wednesday simply disappeared! We decided to call that our fasting and no drinking day - sounds pretty convenient.
    We will arrive in Tonga tomorrow morning for a day of kayaking and snorkeling.
    The South Pacific Ocean has been delightfully smooth and is a spectacular cerulean blue, so different from the water we saw on the way to French Polynesia.
    The first photo is of Bora Bora. It was a lovely island - we biked about 10 miles and got to experience the sounds and wonderful cooking smells on a Sunday morning. The second photo is Papeete, Tahiti where we visited the market and saw some quite unusual fruits, vegetables and fish.
    As you can see from the third photo, Nancy and I have embraced our potential French Polynesian roots and had dinner in flower headdresses!
