Well, we finally made the big 3-0!
30 wonderful years together -
A 30 year anniversary is "Pearls" so we went on a trip to
"French Polynesia" (Tahiti)
where they have black pearls -
(the only place in the world that gets black pearls from oysters).
We spent 11 absolutely wonderful nights on
Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, & Manihi.
It was a MAGICAL trip with so many unique oportunities -
First thing we did there ...
We drove to Teahupoo and watched the Billabong Surf Contest
(Kelly Slater won!!)
Then we took a FERRY to MOOREA for the next 4 nights -
on the 29th - (our anniversary) we had an incredibly delicious dinner
at: "Te Honu Iti"
While eating dinner you watch the Sting Rays playing in the water -
waiting to be fed -
Our Server went out and fed the Sting Rays
(we made sure he washed his hands afterwards!)
Bob surprised me with a beautiful black/green Pearl Necklace!!!
WOW!!! I'm such a lucky girl!!
And, our kids each wrote us a letter - very special!!
(which we read at dinner while waiting for our food).
The HOTEL we stayed in on MOOREA:
The VIEW from our back porch -
Things we did on Moorea:
Watched the Dolphins at the "Dolphin Encounter" (at our hotel)
I made my very own Pareo
Went on a 4x4 jeep safari tour -
We played with the Sting Rays -
Snorkeled with Black Tip Sharks --
SWAM with HUMP BACK WHALES --
& Watched the INCREDIBLE sunset every night!
