The Honeymoon Bora Bora: Kayaking, Tennis, & Snorkeling
I told you a little bit about our honeymoon here, here and here, but I still haven’t even told you half of it!!!! I am just so excited about the things I/we’ve been cooking lately that the honeymoon posts will come now and again.
Anyway, to get back to the honeymoon storytelling time… In Bora Bora PhillyBoy and I had a basic routine every day, and two of the things on that schedule were kayaking & tennis! Every morning we would throw on our running clothes, run over to the tennis court (about .75 mile?), play some tennis, run back, shower and eat breakfast!!
Also, the St. Regis had single and double kayaks available (free) for use all day, so PB and I took full advantage. I felt like a little kid again as we made up reasons to have to kayak to our villa. We would wrap up our camera super tight in plastic bags, hop in the kayak, make it over to our villa, tie it up to the ladder, grab whatever arbitrary object we pretended we needed, and kayaked back! We even went over to the neighboring resort- the Four Seasons- just for an adventure.
Here are a few pics…
We also went snorkeling a few times… I thought I would be pretty and dignified on my honeymoon. Apparently, it was impossible what with the one piece for snorkeling and absolutely fabulous mask and snorkel! OH, and the water shoes!
Somehow, PB made it look natural:
Looking at these pictures makes me miss Bora Bora so much. I wish we were still there! However, I will say that married life has been really fun so far! Which leads me to…
A little housekeeping…
1. I promise I will share wedding pictures and stories as soon as I receive some of the professional proofs! What is a story without a fabulous photo right? For now, I leave you with a photo my cousin took:
My husband is so handsome, even after an epic vodka dance…..
2. Check out my new about section! I just (finally) updated it to reflect the blog’s development and natural changes!!!
and 3. Who else is running the Philly Half (or full) marathon?? PB and I just signed up!!!! (And hopefully HP will too!!!) To celebrate, I ran 6 miles in 60 minutes. That’s the most I’ve run in months, and it felt good!!!!
Have a great evening, and I’ll be back in the AM with a fun and super easy dessert!
