Ah, the land of color, water and never-ending romance
It's hard to imagine living this way, in 5-star luxury (yes, air-conditioning is included).  But even still, the colors and simple architecture makes this a true paradise.
Here we are, starting-off on our great adventure for today:  a day in Bora Bora on the water.
This scene is repeated over and over again!  Alas, you never get tired of seeing it.
Ralph wants to show us that this is now HIS island!  Take it on, Ralph!
Well, we jumped into the water with stingrays and even sharks!  Can you believe it?
It took us no time to get friendly with the water creatures.
Are you ready for this?  This is Ralph surrounded by SHARKS!!!!
A very small group of us spent the day boating around, with two local Tahitians entertaining us and showing us everything!
In Tahitian, a MOTU is a very small island, almost an islet.   Each one is privately-owned.  This is our motu for the day!
This is all-private, open air and one of the most-beautiful places we have every visited.
Can you picture yourself here?  Well, we did!
Need I say anything more?
Well, there were no Blackberry phones turned on today.  It was simple relaxation.
What could be finer?
What could be better than fresh Ahi Tuna (our of the sea) and a can of local Tahitian beer?
Well, we ate a great lunch with fresh fish, fresh vegatables, fresh coconut bread...and our plates were Gilligan-style plates (made from palm leaves).
Our host showed us how to open a coconut's outer shell...with his TEETH!
The Tahitians open a coconut with a simple chop of the hand!
I think I need to sharpen my coconut-opening skills!
C'mon Ralph, give this coconut your best shot!
Sorry, Ralph.  You need to learn these skills, too!
Well, our guide Shaq finally chopped (with his hand) the coconut open, and we tasted it.  Yum.
Well, we got wrapped, Tahitian style.
Just look at this setting!
Could you not just spend forever here?
The snorkeling was amazing!
This is where Ralph feels best at home!
The local Tahitians ride the wake of our boat!
How do the locals get from Motu (island) to island?  On foot, of course!
We just went from one Moto to another....on foot!
These elegant bungalows come with thier own private island (motu).
