Yesterday we came through the narrow channel from the other side of the island to anchor off Le Meridian, a 5star hotel on the Motu opposite the high mountain of Bora Bora. They allowed us to spend the day there today so we had lunch and swam in their lagoon and the swimming pools, a lazy day off the boat. The hotel is full of honeymooners and they have a pretty chapel with stained glass windows on stilts overlooking the lagoon! They are cultivating corals and saving turtles in the lagoon where we swam with large blue tuna and several varieties of reef fish. This morning, snorkelling we saw a moray eel and an octopus which changed colour from brown to white in seconds!
