I have spent the last two days here in Rangiroa gradually processing and uploading our photos from Manihi. The process includes evaluating which photos to share, geotagging the photos, adding descriptions, and then – by far the hardest – uploading them. With slow French Polynesia Internet, the upload process frequently bogs down or breaks.
Anyway, I’m excited to give you a visual taste of the beautiful time we had in Manihi! This is just a small sample of the hundreds of photos we took during our stay. I am listing each of the albums below but you can also read the overview post of our visit to Manihi here (where I will also include links to the photo albums). Make sure you use the “Full Screen” option for best viewing of the photos!
The first album is a compilation of various sights relating to our trip to Manihi. It starts with several photos from our 3.5 day passage to Manihi, the arrival, photos of the anchorage, sights above and below the water, the hotel, and the village. This has lots of beautiful pictures of this beautiful Tuomotus experience.
The next album includes photos from our snorkeling tour of the Manihi Pass. The water was CRYSTAL clear – so clear it was like you were floating in air over the fish and coral.
Next a collection of photos from our pearl farm tour in Manihi. This album includes a good photo of Fernando – our Manihi guide, owner of the pearl farm, and friend – and photos of the pearls we found.
And this final new album includes photos from our second dive (after the night dive) – this time a late afternoon dive of the Manihi pass.
