Moorea Beach

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 1 February 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

Just returned from the South Pacific - French Polynesia Society Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. This has been on my "Bucket List" of places I wanted to visit for a long time.

The weather was not great most of the time, but we still got to see and do so much. It wasn't perfect for photographs, but we suffered through. ;-)

@Ronnie 2¢: It was not always this quiet everywhere. ;-)

The place to be in winter in the northern hemisphere...even though it might not be sunny, it's serene and cures any kind of stress! Only looking at your photo and I start dreaming....

aaanouel from Heredia, Costa Rica

The envy corrodes me!!!! I've always wanted to visit them.

@aaanouel: Don't worry, there will be a lot! I just grabbed a few to post while I unpack, do laundry and start to sort through photos and edit them. You definitely should go! I can't tell you which island we loved the most because they are each different. Our only regret is that we waited so long to go. ( We often compared the fun, beauty, and adventure of this trip to our trip several years ago to Costa Rica. )

Focales from Rhône-Alpes, France

A dream landscape !

It looks wonderful! These are places that I would love to see in person, but for now I will sit back and enjoy your photographs! This one looks a bit moody- I just love the deep blues!

@Tracy: This one was on one of many rainy days, but I should have started with something a little brighter. More to come. ;-)
