Tahiti – 2002 – The sharks

We swam with and fed the small sharks today. They are harmless and content just to eat the food offered and not the hand that feeds them. We were in about three or four feet of water.

The landscapes are unbelievable. One of the places we visited was the beach where part of South Pacific was filmed. The jagged mountains stood out in the distance behind the clear blue bay and as you scanned the sea, there was jungle on both sides to frame the scene and jungle behind you as well. Michener called this place paradise. He was correct.

There is no replacement for the calm of the sea and the caress of the evening wind. I wrote that.
