Rangiroa: Decorating churches with local materials

Because of my love affair with the water in Rangiroa, I feel compelled to include a water shot in every post. This is the water in front of the abandoned church we visited.

P1010316We visited first an old church that is being cared for but not regularly used. We anchored at S15°18'16.27" W147°26'33.02" with the church at S15°18'40.67" W147°28'00.27".

Beautiful shell necklaces and palm frond weavings adorned the statues inside. And a religious text in Tahitian.

Next we walked by the church in the main village of Avatoru which was decorated loud and proud with black pearl shells. Love it.
