Brisk walk on the deck at 6.30am, breakfast in the grand Dining Room then a talk on the history of Cultured Pearls more especially Tahitian Pearls, then off to a cooking demo then a winning spell on the slots followed by lunch. Now day dreaming on our veranda.8

The scenery is stunning, so many little islands, luxurious hotels. But the reality is their economy is in decline and 6 of the 16 hotels have closed and are becoming derelict in this humid tropical climate. Everything here is hideously expensive except for the beautiful fruit and flowers. A very basic cotton type dyed poncho was US$50. Needless to say to didn’t purchase,


Raiatea very beautiful

We had a great time, lots of bubbles, strawberries and delicious nibbles. “it’s All About The Hat” was the theme and I was pleased to be placed third in the women’s competition.  Didn’t win any sweepstakes but we had a great time. Took one photo in the mirror to show off my hat, I am rubbish at selfies so this was the best I could do.
