Island Blooms

The whole island of Moorea seemed like a garden. There were so many different plants and flowers I didn't even try to identify them.

*In January, 2013 I got to go on my bucket list dream trip to the French Polynesian Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. A lot of photos were posted here at that time, but there are so many more that I never got to. I want to revisit those island photos now starting with Moorea.
