Up a little earlier than yesterday so we can get off early and have a look around. These islands are all very pretty if only we had enough time to swim on them. We went for a island drive, as all these island have the tours we wanted to look at this one as well, being bora bora very famous for its stars visiting or buying little houses. Marlon Brando bought a lot of them through the south pacific, everywhere you go he had bought or once owned this or that. Anyway the tour day didn't start well for one older lady, she fell of a step straight over a little bench seat and smash her face into the ground, broke her nose and split her lip, it happened right behind me, I heard a crash and looked around and this poor lady was falling and I couldn’t stop her. Not a good way to start the day. Mind you apparently 3 people have died on this cruise!!!!
We had a great day other wise. We called into see a little store on the way, and they had a banana desert type thing made with coconut milk, Brittany tried it after I told her she would like it and she had a mouth full and as soon as she put it in she nearly started to vomit. Lol so she spat it out lol
The water here is so beautiful if only we had more time to swim in it. L you will have to look at the photos when I can get them up. Its just like the movies, speaking of which we drove past the place they made the movie (Couples retreat) and yes it is beautiful too .
We called into the watering hole called the Bloody Mary and it was lovely a real beach comber type place. There was a guy there dress only in a sorong with pigs tusks around his neck, and yes shane was the only one that would stand beside him, I told the kids he wasn’t a savage as he was to busy drinking a beer Lol J
Then back to the ship as we are the last tour and on the last tender boat we didn’t have any more time to look around.
I was out the front of the ship when we were leaving and the sights were just magnificent, and now it is as ruff as ruff I think this has to have been the ruffest day on sea since we started and theres a lot of rain about, I hope it goes by tonight as it is an island night and they are having a big party up stairs. The kids are looking forward to going. We all have to dress in island clothes.
The night was a ball, Jaclyn was up dancing as well as John, Shane Chloe and Brittany, they had a great time, it was raining and they couldn’t play the music in the rain, so once they sorted out the the DJ system they played that until the live band could come back out again. Roxy was getting tired so Sue took her and put her to bed about 1030pm, while Daryl and I stayed up deck 12 with the kids. Then at 12midnight and the band was having a break we took the chance and grabbed the kids and come down to bed, Jaclyn and John wanted to stay so we let them as they met some really nice you people more of there own age, finally. I am hoping they continue to have a great night. Will let you know in next time. J
