What would it be like to live in paradise? Can you try and imagine? (Please click to enlarge). Here are the tools of trade for living in Huahine, outriggers, fishing boats, nets and boat hangers. Guava, Papaya, Coconut, Breadfruit, Passion Fruit, sweet potatoes and Bananas are everywhere growing wild. Fish are teeming in the lagoons. Chickens roam at will.
This man was fishing with a drop line, he saw my camera, and performed an ocean akido for us! How beautiful is he and so at home in his sea?
This is Huahine’ main archeological site with a traditional house, even the palm trees are laid back here.
Lots of folks want to experience paradise on their own terms.
They sail The Society Islands, stopping where and when they choose. They stay for a long time in Huahine. Smart sailors.
And always the pounding surf on the fringing reefs, sings you to sleep at night and awake in the morning.
The fringing reef protects the island and gives it such ethereal hues.
And at the end of the day, this is home!
Oh, and if you are thinking of visiting Polynesia, consider Huahine. If you like to avoid tourists and development, you will be very happy here. Just watch out for the coral!
Cheers to you from incredible Huahine~
