You hear people describe their coach tours through various countries:  “Wednesday afternoon?? We must have been in so-and- so.

That dear reader, is what happened to me visiting Moorea!  (Well, not exactly)

We set sail from Papeete dock about sunset and were told that 8am next day we would be anchored off shore from the lagoon encircling Moorea Island.

I still don’t”get” why cruise ships spend the night cruising, when the destination is only “A few minutes from the island of Tahiti by plane, and only thirty minutes by high-speed catamaran”…….. which I learned from a tourist brochure.

Anyway, by next morning my bronchitis was really making me miserable, so I opted for a quiet day on board Radiance whilst Margaret went exploring by herself, whilst I dosed myself up with Paracetamol and cough suppressant mixture.

I must admit that I was more keen to visit Bora Bora the next day, because I (mistakenly) thought that was where James A Michener had based his “tales of the South Pacific” and the now famous Bali Hai.
