Our yellow Bubble car

While is Rarotonga we hired a small yellow bubble car a Toyota IQ.





 Just a wee 2 door car that got us around the island just fine. But bellied on many rough spots and almost vanished into major pot holes on some small roads, specially when we drove up to Wigmores Waterfall. Last time we were in Raro we came up here to enjov the cool on hot days, but now the road has deteriorated greatly and it was not easy to drive without going into the pot holes.
 There were quite a few others up here and one of them took our photo.
We stopped off at the old Sheraton buildings and were able to wander around and even go inside the old half finished buildings. I was impressed by the fact that most had an in-ground built in spa pool.  Also by how very extensive the building are. Apparently someone went bankrupt and the building had to be stopped, never to be re-continued. Now goats wander at will around the place to keep the grass down, and it seems that go-carts have a track around the grounds.



Maybe someone will restore the place sometime. Looks better than it is.

That's a strange looking car and the yellow makes it stand out more.

What a fun looking car although probably not the most practical. Thanks for your visit and comment.

Sounds like you would have been better with a Jeep Glennis :) What a shame about the unfinished Sheraton, wonder if someone will invest in the future.. do enough tourists visit to warrant the expense?

Maybe someone will appear with the funds Glennis and rescue the resort. I like the pictures of Picton on your front page it looks great...
