So after two months we find ourselves in Bora Bora. This is the last island we plan to visit in the Society Islands of French Polynesia...
Bora Bora is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in French Polynesia. The water is blue and the lagoons are world famous for their beauty. That said, we have been moored in front of the local yacht club for a few days getting some much needed repairs done on the boat before we head off to Tonga (1000 miles) then New Zealand (1000 miles). In a few days we plan to get out of the harbour and explore some of this famous beauty....
Before arriving here, we spent another week in Raiatea and did some more exploring. Our friends Bruce & Kerry from s/v Haven rented a car and invited us to tour the island with them.
It is said that it was from here Polynesian explorers left to discover places as far away as Hawaii. It is also the home of traditional human sacrifices. We are glad they served up their last human sacrifice some 75 years ago....
We continued around the island and enjoyed a wonderful picnic lunch by the sea...
