Hi everyone! I’m scuba diving in the South Pacific seas surrounding Rangiroa today. Rangiroa is an atoll, which is an island of coral surrounding a lagoon. Atolls are formed from volcanic activity. A volcano erupts, its top blows up and falls into the sea, and coral growing on the sides of the volcano continue to grow.
We’re on a 14-night cruise in French Polynesia. We went on a similar cruise last year (except this time we’re going to the Marquesas) and the snorkeling was amazing. We decided to go again this year so I could try my hand at scuba diving. Even though I’m missing out on a lot of the holiday mumbo-jumbo, I baked up a storm prior to our vacation.
These cookies were wonderful. The dough came together easily and it was easy to roll and cut. I made the dough one day and baked the next.
