Moorea, Tahiti, Huahine, and Bora Bora (The Society islands)

Snorkeling in Bora Bora

We are in the Society archipelago right now.  When we got to the set of islands we first went to an island called Moorea. We anchored in a bay called Cook's bay. Cook's bay is not the nicest anchorage because there is a lot of trash in the water. Mark and I spent about 30 minutes fishing  trash out of the water. Then we went to Papeete, in Tahiti. Papeete is not the nicest town, but the anchorage is okay, and there is a beach. There is a store called the Carrefour, a big store with lots of things in it. Then we went back to Moorea. This time we went to a bay called Baie D'Opunohu. The next morning we went to  a place that I call stingray city. At first I was afraid to go near the stingrays, but when we came next time, I was not as scared, but I would not feed the stingrays. Marks finger was in a stingrays mouth twice, and a stingray bumped into Mark while he was trying to feed it. We went to the coral gardens and feed the fish in Bora Bora. One bit my finger. Then we were going to go snorkeling, but there was not much to see, but we did see a crown-of-thorns starfish.

Then we went to a place called Huahine. We found a tree and climbed into it. We had a nut war with our friend, Finn. Then I went windsurfing and later we played king of the board. We had lots of fun at those 4 islands!
