Raro Dreams~

Woo Hoo!

I made a friend in Rarotonga named Emma from the island of Atiu, and she helped me find a hotspot that worked, albeit, it was quite a challenge.

Thank you Emma & Kia Orana!

Raro has amazing pristine beaches,

coral reefs,

and empty, jungle-covered volcanic mountains to explore.

Our son is exploring with us, and tomorrow we head to the more remote island of Aitutaki.

Cheers to you from the unspoiled & ethereal Cook Islands~

        1. Most of the ocean is still gorgeous, but the plastic that is accumulating is truly horrible. I have spent so much time on the oceans of the world, but haven’t seen the plastic. It tends to cluster in these huge gyro areas which I have avoided. It is just a tragedy and such human folly…..

  1. What fantastic beaches and such beautiful aqua blue sea.
    That crashing wave shot is making me very envious of your holiday destination.

  2. Looks like Paradise, Cindy! Enjoy your travels and soak up some of that warm sunshine for those of us still reeling from this unusually cold Spring!

  3. Cindy, this looks like a real paradise. So beautiful and unspoilt. The colours of the water and sand. Well, everything really.
    Are you sure you will be able to go back home.😊.
    Thanks for sharing with us, we can dream.

    1. It is good to come here inr your mind, and the benefist are myriad, there are no mosquitos, or any other of the realities of reality. Hugs to you Tina, and love & prayers too~

    Bonjour ou bonsoir mon amie CINDY

    Je viens te faire le cadeau des plus précieux

    Celui du temps

    De rêver à de nouvelles idées

    De réfléchir aux anciennes

    Peu importe le temps que nous passons ensemble sur nos blogs

    Tu découvriras toujours de nouvelles dimensions

    Au travers du miroir et de ce lien celui de notre l’amitié

    L’amitié c’est aimer pour ce qu’elle est moi je le pense

    Non pour ce qu’elle fait

    En se sentant aimé

    On est capable de grandes choses, de s’accrocher , de réussir

    Belle journée ou soirée et belle semaine

    Bisous Bernard

  5. Hope the Cook Islands hold all kinds of fun, beauty and a few pleasant surprises for you, your hubby, son and your family (🌠 “Cindy’s Entourage!” 🌠)
    Lots of love sent to you and yours! 💞

  6. What a gorgeous paradise, Cindy! It looks wonderful there. And it’s great that your son joined you too. It sounds like finding good wifi is a real challenge!

      1. It really is. One of the things I really like about blogging is I’m constantly learning. Your photos along with your colorful captions really bring them alive. And of course it gave me something to Google!

  7. I Googled the Cook Islands. They look magnificent. There are 15 islands with Rarotonga being the largest. I wonder how long it would take by plane from New York. The site said 6 hours. It has to take much longer to reach the South Pacific. I need to do more research.

    1. The only flights from the US are from LAX and it takes over ten hours. All other flights go through Auckland or Tahiti or Fiji. Some Europeans fly to LAX, and then to the Cooks. The Cooks are not easy to get too, unless you live in New Zealand, but this is why they are wonderful. From NY you would have to fly to LAX, take the overnight flight to The Cooks which I think only goes once a week, Here is a link for you that may help:

  8. What a heavenly paradise! The beaches are stunning. How I wish I could lay on the shoreline of one of those immaculate beaches. Thank you for sharing and taking me on yet another incredible journey with you, Cindy. 💙
