The Cooks are for Critters~


Chicks on chairs.

Goats in gardens.

Cows in clover.

Terns in trees.

And,

in the air.

Mynas at your feet,

and at your door.

Girl on the sea,

son down deep.
The Cooks are for critters like you and me.
Cheers to you from the critterful Cooks~

Waving~


Waves on tropical reefs,

sing,


a constant lullaby.

Island breezes,


carry,


flower scented air.

As the sun sets,

you doze and dream of mermaids,

waving from the sea.

Cheers to you from the peaceful Cooks~
(We are home at The Holler now, but I have a few more tranquil images from The Cooks to share with you).

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~

Raro’s Adogables~


Rarotonga is the island of happy dogs. No matter what you do, a dog will come with you.

They wait at your door for you to come out.

Swimming?

If you swim, they will come along!

They swim to distant reefs with our son everyday.

Fishing?

Heck yes!

They are master fisherdogs and,

they bring their catch to you!

Hiking? Their paw prints mark your path.

Cheers to you from Rarotonga’s incredible adogables~

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~
