SNAPSHOTS OF MOOREA


INCREDIBLE SUNSET FROM OUR OVERWATER FARE


FADING RAPIDLY BUT STILL BEAUTIFUL


OUR KIDS IN THE OUTRIGGER CALLING IT A DAY


CHANGING SKY


THESE GUYS SAILED BY EACH NIGHT (TAHITI IN BACKGROUND)


PEACEFUL EARLY MORNING JUST BEFORE BREAKFAST


VIEW OF ISLAND FROM OUR FARE


ANOTHER VIEW OF MOOREA VILLAGE FROM OUR FARE


TINY FISHERMAN - BIG PASSENGER SCHOONER


LEAVING PORT CRUISING JUST OUTSIDE THE BARRIER REEF


NOW THAT'S A MORAY!  (LOOK CAREFULLY)


2 DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEA CUCUMBER RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER


NIGHT SHOT UNDER OUR FARE OF "SOMETHING" ON THE BOTTOM.  MY WIFE SWEARS IT WAS A LIONFISH.  I'M JUST NOT SURE.  I DID SWIM WITH LIONFISH DURING THE DAY THERE SO THEY ARE AROUND!  ANY IDEA WHAT THIS GUY MIGHT BE?


PINEAPPLE FIELD.  THESE PINEAPPLES WERE THE BEST WE'VE EVER TASTED.  THEY WERE SO TENDER YOU DIDN'T NEED TO BOTHER CORING THEM.


PROCESSING THE SWEET FRUIT


BREADFRUIT TREE


VIEW OF LOVELY LAGOON FROM AN ELEVATED ISLAND ROAD


A LITTLE MOTU OR ISLAND IN THE LOCAL LANGUAGE 


SHARK'S TOOTH MOUNTAIN (BALI HAI) AND COOKS BAY DOWN BELOW


SHARK'S TOOTH IS ACTUALLY PART OF AN OLD, SEMI-COLLAPSED VOLCANIC CRATER


BEAUTIFUL DANCING BY A LOCAL DANCE GROUP.  UNLIKE IN HAWAII WHERE DANCERS ARE "JUST PUTTING ON ANOTHER SHOW" SOMETIMES, THESE WARM PEOPLE TAKE THEIR TRADITIONS SERIOUSLY.


THE BOYS IN THE BAND


DANCE LEADER PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE SEA


VILLAGE HOME WITHIN EYESIGHT AND EAR SHOT OF OUR FARE.  EVERY MORNING BEFORE SUN-UP THEIR CHICKENS LOUDLY CRIED OUT "COCKA-DOODLE-DOO."  THEY SERVED AS OUR ALARM CLOCK ALTHOUGH A LITTLE MORE SLEEP WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE!
