Paul and Elizabeth's Adventures in The Cook Islands

Day 37, Tuesday, October 1, 2002—
We tried out an introductory scuba lesson and dive today. Paul actually took the swim (though he briefly got caught in an underwater tunnel and had visions of his life pass before him...) but Elizabeth couldn't seem to get the hang of breathing with the equipment and ended up snorkling again while Paul was on his dive.

In the evening, we attended the Edgewater Resort's Island Night with Umukai Feast, featuring the Taakoka Dance Troupe, one of the top dance troupes on Rarotonga.
