Real Honeymoon: Elizabeth and Cameron in Moorea and Bora Bora
Continued (page 2 of 2)
There's Something About Bloody Mary's
That evening we were the ones with the appetite, and legendary Bloody Mary's, with its sand floor and thatched roof, quickly became our favorite restaurant as we dined on delicious tuna and wahoo.
A Few Slices of Island Life
The next morning we strapped ourselves in for a four-by-four tour and bounced our way up scary inclines and past fabulous views. Another day, we befriended the owners of Ben's pizza shack, and spent time swapping tales. Later we stumbled upon private Matira Point Beach, where we waded a half-mile out in waist-deep water. Then came the perfect end to the perfect day: an evening spent under the stars, watching a Tahitian dance show from the deck of our bungalow.
One Last Look
As we boarded the yacht back to the airport, we watched
the sun bounce off the waves and stared back at Bora Bora, thinking to ourselves, Simply amazing.
