Paul and Elizabeth's Adventures in The Cook Islands

Day 39, Thursday, October 3, 2002—
Having heard good things about the Bishop's Lagoon Cruises when we arrived yesterday, we booked for today. This cruise took us to some of the best snorkling we've had on the trip and to several islands in the atoll. We had a good Bar-B-Q on One Foot Island (though we thought the one on the Capt. Tama's cruise was superior) and enjoyed time with friends Anna and her son Anders from Sweden.

In the evening, we took the bus to Cafe Tupuna's for probably the best seafood we've had on the trip.
