Day 2 - Sept. 13

From Dave's Journal:

     We moved to a mooring at the Habiscus Restaurant where our 4-wheel tour of the island began. The Vaipoe Safari tour included stops at several scenic overlooks, the pearl farm, and a vanilla plantation. While we were on the tour, Sunsail sent a technician to repair a problem with the starboard head and to replace the dinghy motor that was difficult to start. That evening we had a nice dinner at the Hibiscus while being entertained by local musicians and Polynesian dances. The dancers were 3 teenage girls, 1 teenage boy, and the clientele. At the end of the show, two couples from two tables were enticed to dress in native costume and dance with the girls. Dan and Ronnie were chosen as one couple. During the day we learned that storm surge had produced considerable damage to cottages at two resorts on Bora Bora.
