... and locate what we would like to do next day. Kayaking looks to be a great I idea so note to self when we bus it down next. I waded out to one of the islands (I had packed my reef shoes) leaving Barry to soak up the rays.
We went for a long walk along the lagoon. That can take some time as there are a few good eateries and places to settle in for a cool bevvy right on the sand to keep you fed and watered along the way.
Back to our own ideal location to while away ...
... the rain was bucketing down and the wind picked up. I ran a Long Jump for Junior women at 1pm and we got very wet. I then had another Long Jump and then was scheduled to run the Senior Men's High Jump at 4pm. This was postponed until 5pm because the rain was pouring down and the wind was strong. However, at 5pm we started the event, even though it was still raining lightly. We completed the event through driving rain but we manged without any ...
... Rarotongan. This is a more upmarket resort with a fabulous pool and a stunning beach. They were hosting a wedding, the white tent and tables decorated with local flowers and overlooking the sunset and the beach. A great venue for a romantic wedding.
Tomorrow we plan to drive right around the island, stopping at Muri and Sails restaurant which Fletcher says is terrific. Something to look forward to!!
This will a longish entry because of the confusing international date line. We left Christchurch at the crack of dawn on the 15th of March and a few hours later landed in Rarotonga on the 14th of March. It is a very strange feeling to repeat a day in such different surroundings.

I would definitely not recommend. Our 'free continential breakfast' was giving us a container of corn flakes, a loaf of bread and a couple of eggs the night before. Though we read online there was free internet, they said "the wires were cut" and if we wanted internet we had to buy it at a telecom. I was scared to set anything down because it would be invaded with little red ants. I found cockroaches in my suitcase after setting it on the floor overnight. Not to mention the owner's boyfriend was completely wasted and stumbling around on the first day of our stay. Don't stay there.
