31st October 2022

It was touch and go as to whether we were going to be able to get off the ship at Aitutaki, as the weather had been terrible and we we going to have to tender ashore as this island doesn’t have a pier big enough for cruise liners to berth alongside.

We were lucky with the weather and were able to land. A short stroll took us to the Pacific resort where we based ourselves for the day.

Jane wanted to get to grips with snorkelling and this was an ideal place, shallow water, coral and no strong currents to contend with……..

Before coming on this holiday I bought a case for my iPhone so that I could take some underwater photos……….these are my first attempts…….

After an hours swimming it was time for a walk along the beach back to the hotel for some lunch…..

After a low-calorie burger we headed out for a bit more underwater exploring!

I thought for one moment I had bumped into Jacques Cousteau but on further investigation it was only Kev with his new hat on!

Time to go back to the ship, it looks quite close………..maybe we could swim?

Jane and Val thought that would be a stupid idea so we started walking back to the tender port…….Kev had wandered off as usual, we don’t worry anymore as he normally finds his way back…….I heard a car horn honking behind me……….Kev had cadged a lift from someone in the shop were he had been buying beer…….so we arrived back in style!

I took this photo of where we had spent our day from the back at the ship……..not long afterwards the heavy rain started again……how lucky were we!
