Coral Garden

We got luckier with the weather yesterday than we dare hoped to dream. Around noon, as we approached the anchorage on the eastern side of the island, the great sailor in the sky furled in the clouds revealing dazzling sunshine. We rejoiced!

We had lunch near a group of motus on the edge the lagoon—the water was cyan and Bora Bora pierced the sky in the distance.

After a swim, we picked up a mooring ball in a nearby cove, hopped in the dinghy and snorkled the nearby coral garden. It's a shallow, narrow pass in from the sea and home to the most fish and liveliest coral we've seen since the Tuamotus. We're off to ride the current a time or two again this morning before setting sail to Bora Bora. Busy Tuesday!
