We have arrived on Bora Bora and to our resort, the Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort. Our plan is to make the most of today but queue jumpers are making it hard
Today we do the unthinkable. We leave Tikehau and travel to Bora Bora. Via Pape’ete, as I fought so hard to be able to do, full of doubt and excitement.
Final morning at Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort.
Tikehau DIY trash the dress shoot. We brought a dress but we didn’t really practice the DIY part. Let’s see how this all pans out.
Today is the day Triston gets to Scuba Dive the Tuheiava Pass, Tikehau. I think it sounds scary but he is excited. Let see what he thinks of it out there.
Struggling with time on Tikehau, it was about 3 am when I woke up properly. 4 am a storm came in. At 5:30 am I lay in bed and watched the sky dance with colours as the sun begins to rise. I tell Triston it is a pretty sunrise. He opens one eye, agrees and rolls over. Breakfast this morning is at 7:30am (we were told so at dinner last night). By 6am I can no longer take pretending to sleep. The morning has already been so pretty so I mutter to Triston about going droning before anyone is awake. That way we don’t have to worry about accidentally having people in the shot. The wind has completely died away after the storm, the water is calm. This is the first time we see the water still. It has always had a tide or breeze ripple in it. We are transfixed. The water is almost one with the surroundings, it is so clear, so calm. We decide to walk out to where we had walked …
Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort. Pink sand beaches. Starting to settle in. Scary loud visitors in the night, infultrating my dreams, scaring the crap out of me.
We booked for the pink sand beach and have been blown away by the marine life.
After a decent enough journey that still managed to feel like an eternity we finally arrive. Tikehau island and soon after Tikehau Pearl Beach Resort.
Arriving late at night, leaving in the morning. Not a recipe to spend a lot of money on an expensive hotel room. So we don’t.
