This morning, we sailed between some of the atolls of the Tuamotus and entered the pass of Tahanea. We went ashore to a gorgeous little spot on one of the motus lining the rim of this island. Here, we took out the toys and enjoyed paddleboarding in calm, azure waters. We snorkeled off the beach in clear water filled with coral and fish. Many of us wandered beside the open ocean. And, of course, the hotel team spoiled us with treats. It was really nice to be back in the warm waters of the Tuamotus. So nice, in fact, that we plan to do it all again tomorrow.
