Our 115 day World Cruise, day 24, Moorea

Finally the rain has stopped.  We even went for a walk this afternoon.  This morning we met Mary Lou for a late breakfast/early lunch.  We went to Coco's and I do believe that they are not long for this world!  The breakfast was good......we both had 2 poached eggs on an english muffin.  That sounds all well and good but we also shared a carrot muffin!

After we finished breakfast we went back to our neighborhood Starbucks in Hillcrest  and bought a large green tea for the rest of our running.  
This is the Starbucks that we went to everyday for about 4 years.  It is very small, not much bigger than the one in Sun City West.  There is no one there that we know.  I am sure we can change that.  Across the street is a bagel shop and the guy that works there has been working there for over 20 years!  Maybe someday I can get in there and get his picture!

We went home and gutted the closet so that they can install the new one on Wednesday.  We then made a run to Goodwill to give them all the plastic cabinets.  Then we came home and decided to walk over to the Gelato shop....a nice little walk!

   It is really winter here.  This is the only thing I could find in bloom.  Two weeks and it will all change!

We really enjoyed our ice cream.  Guess we won't do that again very soon at $5 per dish!

Now we are going to go down to the storage room and see what we can find...this should be interesting.    Of course, I forgot to take my phone to take a picture.

Now it is time to look at what is going on in port.

WHERE WE DID NOT GO ......but the AMSTERDAM did!

It was 13 years ago that Vicki and I were in Moorea.  Oh my has it changed and I am sure that they now realize how important the tourists are to their economy.  They were just learning when we were there!  Below you will find photos from Jeff's blog

As mentioned in the prior post from Papeete, we sailed over to Moorea this morning with a plan to spend the night in one of those "cool" huts over the water....  Here are some photos that I took on the way to the Moorea Intercontinental Hotel, our "cool" hut over the water.  This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet.  Too bad it's so expensive, could be paradise.....  Here are just a few of the beautiful scenes from Moorea, more to follow tomorrow......
Jeff is not the only one that loves these accommodations.  I love what he did to make it possible to stay in them.

This picture is how I remember Moorea.  It is so unique and beautiful!  Waa, I want to ogo back!  Soon, soon book a cruise Yes! 
We stopped at a place that looked like this.  It was up in the hills and they sold the best ice cream!


I enjoyed just 

                          SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW IN BORA BORA!
