Islands of Forgotten Time~


The Cooks are the islands that time forgot.

When you are here time loses meaning.

You don’t wear a watch,

or have a clock.

You rise with the sun,

and set with it too.

You are on island time.

You make island friends,

like Jim’s hiking partners,

and my little buddy who are on island time too!

Cheers to you from the timeless Cooks~

  1. You had me convinced that this is an island paradise after your post about the friendly dogs! Gorgeous images, Cindy! I’m so glad you’re having a wonderful time in the Cooks. 🙂

      • Yes and some years ago a movie was made of Captain Cook going to the Islands, but that was pure fantasy. He never made it to the big island, only the smallest and mostly uninhibited Island. It was the Spanish long before Cook, but it was the British who eventually made Cook Island a British territory. However, the Islands got Cook’s name because he was responsible for much of the Pacific Ocean Islands oceanographic, I think. However, the islands did develop a more dubious reputation as time went on. Lots of Pirates too. Your photography is beautiful. Thank you!

        • You might enjoy reading, “Come Ashore We Will Kill and Eat You All,” by Christina Thompson. She is a scholar and academic, married to a Maori man, and she wrote a fascinating book that is both a history of the colonization of Polynesia, and a memoir about her marriage and the cultural differences therein. It is a fascinating book

  2. Bonjour ou bonsoir belle fille CINDY

    La vie a grand besoin de respect et d’amour
    Il faut savoir donner pour mériter de prendre
    Ce qui nous est offert et savoir aussi le rendre
    Nous traversons, souvent, pendant notre vie
    Des tortueux chemins qui viennent nous surprendre
    C’est alors qu’il nous faut ouvrir nos cœurs et tendre
    La main à nos amis pour leur dire bonjour

    Belle journée ou belle soirée

    Bisous Bernard
