Tahiti – 2002 – LA Meridien – Bora Bora

We took a boat ride to Bora Bora. It was a lovely day as they all seem to be when you are on vacation. Even when it rains on vacation it is a beautiful day. I was still working during most of these trips, so time away from work and being on vacation was a double blessing.

We stayed in an over water bungalow. The place was perfect. The floor was clear, thick, glass or plastic. You could swim underneath your room and then look up into it from underwater. Some aspects of that are good, and some not so much.

The restaurant there was wonderful and the service also. I find that when I am on vacation I run at a different speed and little upsets me. So time is and should be meaningless when one is one vacation. Of course, some countries lend themselves to a slower pace better than others do.

There was a recovery bay full of sea creatures on the mend which we could swim near and study a little closer than those out in the open sea. We stayed far enough away not to bother them, but close enough to see them better.

As we drifted in the water, it would eventually take us back to our room, with little effort. There was a newly wed couple near us and in the morning their breakfast was brought to their room by outrigger canoe.
