It was a low key day in paradise.
From Aidan: Today when I got up, water sports were cancelled because of strong winds. Nathan and I swam in the pool and built sand castles. When we finally got a pedal boat, the current was strong. I had to get out and pull us back.
From Nathan: In the morning, Aidan went snorkeling to find shells for Mom. I did not get to go, because my wound was still healing. Luckily, I got to go swimming in the freshwater pool. I enjoyed being in the water, because I was not happy sitting on the beach yesterday. After a quick lunch, I played leap frog on the paddle boards. The boards were tied up, so guests would not get carried away by the strong current. Also, I played tennis and went kayaking with Mom.
The leg is getting better. I’m hoping to find a way to snorkel in saltwater tomorrow without it stinging too badly!
There’s three rows of bungalows at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa.

It’s too windy for even birds too fly.
This bird looks fake, right? He’s real and looking rather mean.
The “tree” on the right is a cell tower or some kind of antenna.

Boys play leap frog on paddle boards. No water sports this morning because of strong wind and current.
Aidan saves the day by pulling in the pedal boat. The current was just too strong.

The water is serious crystal clear.

Not exactly swimsuit material!
Man, my legs were ugly before but now… yikes!
