Cruise around
French Polynesia

The Island of Bora Bora

The harbour

One of many coves with one of the many stray dogs

Every village has a Protestant church

We are welcomed with flowers

Some of the luxury homes owned by American film stars (Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson)

Crabs live all around the shore and they eat anything.  We threw flowers at the holes and they ran out, grabbed the flowers and they took them back home.  In the centre are two crabs each pulling the same flower to their different holes.

One of the only white sand beaches

And then the stingrays came

He swam around with them, feeding them.  They expect him the same time every day

Bringing one of them for us to stroke.  This one was pregnant
