Bora Bora

This place is so friggin beautiful!!!! The water is clear and so blue. We moored at the bora bora yacht club and had dinner there. That was probably the best meal I've ever had in my entire life. The beef carpaccio was amazing. The steak with duck con fit was also amazing and of course the wine was perfect and the sunset is beautiful from the dock there. We left there in the morning and went to the lagoonarium and just anchored by the beach. At the lagoonarium we swam with blacktip reef sharks, lemon sharks, stingrays and tons of fish. Yes....I got in the water....and swam with sharks....on was actually really cool! They just kinda swim around you and try to avoid you really so we started chasing them lol...trying to get good shots with the GoPro n all...the lemon shark was big tho huge so he was kinda scary. They serve you a platter of fruit to snack on and they feed the sharks dead fish...weird...

The next day Ty and Greg did some diving next to the coral reef in that same area and saw the huge manta rays! They look so beautiful and so graceful in their slow gliding. 

We stopped by the famous Bloody Mary's for a beer but there is really not much going on there so we left and moored at the other yacht club for the night. We walked to town and got some more groceries n stuff and had a feast! Now we are on our way to maupiti for diving and hiking tomorrow. 

The boat sails nicely with just the genoa. We have the mainsail now but the factory forgot to include some essential parts and now we have to wait for them to ship us those pieces and install it later.
