Another overnight sail and we arrive in yet another beautiful island in French Polynesia – Rangiroa. Today I am snorkelling what they call the aquarium garden. It is another beautiful reef with all sorts of fish, and today we saw black tipped sharks and moray eels. Our boat man had brought his ukulele to serenade us and we had men in the water in case we needed help. There was a strong current here also. When I got out of the water, one of the assistants said I was like a mermaid and obviously loved the water. Not sure about the mermaid, but I do love swimming in the warm waters here and seeing all these beautiful creatures..
Afterwards, Sandy and I found a great little French restaurant, Le Relais de Josphine, right on the water and enjoyed some local wine and a delicious omelette avec fromage et jambon, salad and french stick. We fed the bread to the fish that were just below our deck, enjoyed the wine and spent a regenerating four hours just sitting and listening to the waves break below us. We also watched people who were drift snorkelling out in front of us with the strong currents that were being created by the incoming tide.
