Totem has made landfall in Tahiti. While we process on being here (Tahiti! Center of many tropical dreams, here we are: in the very same bay where Bligh grew breadfruit saplings to take to the West Indies, and Cook came to watch the transit of Venus across the sun) …we have found the best wifi in months and are putting pictures from the last few weeks in the Tuamotus up on flickr.
Feast…click through any one for more on Flickr.
Mairen, getting the hang of that Polynesian flower-behind-the-ear thang.
Siobhan, getting a lift on a long reef snorkel.
Stunning coral forms and colors.
Pearl farms. Which, naturally, come with pearls.
Good times with old friends…
…and a passel of new friends, too.
