Our 115 day World Cruise, day 25, Bora Bora

Today is our last day in San Diego.  It seemed a little strange especially since I would rather be leaving here and going to Bora Bora.

Went to Starbucks as usual and only stayed there long enough to have our breakfast.

After breakfast we went to Bed Bath and Beyond.  I bought a new picture for over the fireplace.


Then we rushed over to True Food to meet Lou for lunch.  This picture was taken in October while we were on the Ruby Princess.  We were celebrating Lou's retirement.  Lou and Vicki have been friends for 28 years.  We are trying to talk him into joining us on the Crown Princess on August 18th for the cruise to the Baltic.

We came home and I promptly loaded the car for our trip home tomorrow.  We are hauling back a new computer and I am taking one of my visual aids back to use in SCW.

There was a beautiful sunset tonight.....fitting for our last night and it made us think we were in Bora Bora

In the morning they are coming to install the closet.  As soon as they are done we will be hitting the road for Yuma!

I want to share with you, my little story about Bora Bora..
In 1999 we took the R3 cruise ship  around French Polynesia.   This was my first cruise.  I was totally enchanted with Bora Bora.  For our tour we went to a resort where we had lunch and they let us use their beach.  It was absolutely beautiful.  The water was the perfect temperature and it was so clear....the colors of blue were breath-taking.  I waded out about 50 yards where my friend Joe was looking through his goggles...The water was about thigh high and there was a small coral reef...Joe wanted me to put on the goggles and look at the fish....get my hair wet?....are you kidding me?...I'll hold them up to my eyes but I don't see any fish...up go the goggles and down goes my face into the water...OMG I shrieked!  The fish are beautiful....I continued to shriek ....did I say that there were not very many people around and I was told they could hear me clear to Moorea?

             Where we did not go today.....but the AMSTERDAM did!

                                                 Jeff's photos are fantastic!Thank you Jeff!

We arrived into Bora Bora early this morning…..  Today was a special day because I was going out on the reef to swim with the sharks.  I do this every time I come here…..  I love it!  In 2009, I went on a tour with a local guy named Patrick.  It was the best tour I have ever done and today was to be a repeat.  A number on my friends were booked along with me which made it doubly special.   This blog shows the above water beauty of Bora Bora from our sailin continuing through our tour which included a circumnavigation of the island.  This is truly one of the most beautiful places that I have encountered in my travels plus…. Love swimming with those sharks….
