Hienghene Sunday

by Adam

Played games last night.IMG_0610

This morning, got up and went to breakfast at 6:30.

On my way, passed an incident which happened yesterday.

Also saw Jacu and Boon who were setting off – mountain biking 60km to the other side of the island!

After a few croissants, I met with Paul, Francois and Aurelie for 6:45am departure.

It only took us 2 hours 15 minutes to get to Hienghene, without any speeding.  The weather was beautiful.

First stop was at the Poulet at Hienghene.

Then we went to the beach featuring the rock on the 500 Franc bill.

Then lay in the sun, drying off.  I’m usually a sun-avoider, but on the hot sand and sunshine, this felt really good!

Played with some cameras.  Paul’s D3s, Flore’s OM-D.

After Jacu and Boon arrived, we went to the resort for buffet.
