Flag of French Polynesia  , Society Islands,
Thursday, February 10, 2011

Early in the morning we slipped into the Huahine's bay--paradise!  The Road Scholar group left the ship on the tender at about 8:30 am and on the pier we boarded a motorized outrigger for a ride into the lagoon and a visit to a black pearl farm to learn how pearl seeds are implanted and how the black pearls grow.  Then we boated across the inlet to another lagoon for an hour-long drift snorkel.  The fish and the reefs were gorgeous.  I wish I had an under-water camera!  In the afternoon we had a fascinating lecture on marine invertebrates from our instructor Art Reed; I know I'll see things now in the reefs that I totally missed on this morning's snorkeling session.
