Images from the Tuamotus

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.

Stunning coral forms and colors.

Pearl farms. Which, naturally, come with pearls.

Good times with old friends…

    Stunning photos! You have such a wonderful eye. I especially love the one of Siobhan getting the lift underwater. What an amazing moment! I am off to go through the Flickr album now.
    And yes, TAHITI! Whoooooo! Savor.

    Incredible pictures Behan! Love the one of Siobhan too – little tiny feet 🙂
    I just said to Jim, “What are we doing here?”
    Congrats on being able to do this while your kids are young.

    Funny, I have the exact same photo of the pearl farm! You could almost swap the pictures and not know they were taken by two different people at different times.

    Thank for keeping the arm chair yacht moving for us 😉
