Yesterday once we had re-anchored in some lovely
mud we went ashore to explore the hinterland, we are anchored by the "world
famous" Bloody Mary's" or so they say , theirs a large placard with a list of
Celebes pasted next to the entrance most of whom I have never herd of , but if
you read tabloid tat you would probably recognise the names, I wouldn't
know a celeb if I saw one.. well theirs so many, apparantly they are graded from
A to Zeee...
by the prices charged I dint think there will be
many from Corrie or Dead Enders visiting this place they will have to be megga
stars , the price reflects ..
After our tour around this end of the island,
we saw more of the same of shut up restaurants and hotels, its been the case on
every island we have visited, Bora Bora being no exception.
Looks like the prices / cruise ships have
chipped away at the land based hotels, why pay 900 USD a night when you can go
on a first rate ship and have the same service but see all the islands at the
same time instead of being stuck on one island, anyway that's my theory of the
economic situation here , problem is they haven't woken up to it yet and still
charge top whack for everything ...
Rob went on his first run on Bora Bora this
morning, after a story related to us at our first anchorage here by
Mike of "Summer Wine" who was bitten up the arse by a doggie on one of the
Motos we wondered what would happen, Rob got round in double quick time
chased by a bunch of Barbie dogging rabid doggies snapping at his heals , the
soles of his runners were red hot, but he returned with all his bits intacked,
he went via the the radio mast, at one point he thought of going up it as the
rabid pack closed on his heels, over the top of the hill and down into the
western bay area, good views we are told but Rob didn't hang about to look for
to long as the pack gained on him his stoic will power drove him on
to to get back to the jetty and away from the doggie population who must do this
as a sport every morning to mad brits on there round the island morning jog
We suggested to him that perhaps taking
Barbie sauce and a skewer might put off our four legged friends on future
runs around the bay .
