Dreams come true, part three

The best part of the trip to French Polynesia was our stay at The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. We flew from Papeete to Bora Bora and boarded the gorgeous private speed boat shuttle from the airport to the resort. We had the whole boat to ourselves.

We arrived the Four Seasons and were escorted by golf cart directly to our room, which was at the very end of the boardwalk. It took me three days to realize they had upgraded us from the booked overwater bungalow room with plunge pool, to the Otemanu Suite. I kept looking around thinking our bungalow was bigger than the others and our deck had so many different sections, completely different from the decks that were visible to us. Most of the couples we met were honeymooners, so I told Blue Eyes they must have thought we EARNED the upgrade with our 30 years of marriage! Little do they know!

We spent the week luxuriating on our spacious deck, hanging out in our 1600 sq. ft. room (😮), enjoying a private romantic anniversary dinner for two on the beach, cruising the turquoise waters, visiting a turtle rescue center, snorkeling with the resident marine biologist, getting pampered at the spa, soaking in the beauty all around us, and enjoying each other.

Arriving Bora Bora Airport to discover our water taxi was this gorgeous motor boat!

The luscious fruit plate in our room on arrival. We honestly did not know what some of the fruit was, but it was all delicious!

My flower crown was potentially my favorite part of the whole anniversary celebration

And my favorite part of our deck: the relaxation sunbed

Since we had our own plunge pool, we didn’t spend much time at the hotel pool, but it was beautiful!

We jetted over to Le Meridien hotel to visit the Bora Bora Turtle Rescue Centre. This is Jordan the green sea turtle

Bora Bora was simply amazing!

I had dreamed about visiting Bora Bora for 34 years. Honestly, it did not disappoint! We had an incredible time! ❤️

    • Thanks! It’s a long and grueling journey with a sex addict. I still look at him and wonder what secrets he holds, but then I acknowledge he doesn’t want to be that guy anymore and I’m not sure whether it’s trust, or just acceptance of what he is, and that I can’t change it, but I’m in a calm place. Day by day! The trip was truly amazing. 🤗❤️
