Beach Beauty

I love the diversity of different beaches. The beaches in Bora Bora had mostly coral and white shells. Every time I visit a beach, I bring home a little bottle of sand. They all look different.

 I couldn't get over the shades of color in the water, the palm trees and the sky.
I took a beginner set of pastels and a drawing pad. There were definitely not enough tints and shades of blue to capture these colors. Thank you Erin for the suggestion. I was trying to find my inner "arteest".  I struggled, that's for sure, but it was a fun thing to do on the beach, in the shade.
We spent one fun day on an island where you could see the entire thing from one side to the other. We were taught how to tie a pareo in different ways, we could ride a jet ski, get a massage, eat amazing food, have floaty time, kayak, and learn a polynesian dance. 

These girls were having so much fun, but I think the random husband stole the show. 
He gave me his floaty afterwards so I could join in.
I think this is enough for today.  Don't worry, there is more.
