Location: Raiatea

Today we went canoeing up fresh water and into the crater of a volcano. Our guide told us all about the different types of trees and plants; when we came back, he gave us a tour in the ÒoldÓ botanical gardens. It was Awesome! We motor-sailed to town for free time ashore. We came back to the boat; I motored to a place where they had mooring balls on the west side of Raiatea. We studied and had dinner. Julia told Marie and me a funny story before bed!
