Moorea

We took a trip to Moorea (an island in French Polynesia, part of the Society Islands) last year. Can't believe I never shared pictures! Here are a few:

Looking every bit the rap star:

If I'm not wearing a black turtleneck, I'm usually donning some kind of beater tank.

I went running around the island and managed to find my brethren!

Ate at Le Mayflower - my first time (I think) eating French food.

The husband had the healthy steamed fish and vegetables.

Of course I had the fattening cream sauce lobster ravioli. Mmm!

Snail egg roll. First time eating snails. Yeah, I won't be doing that again.

Hiking to the grocery store. So beautiful.

Beautiful pictures!

I'm so impressed that you tried all those different foods. I guess you've got to step out of your comfort zone since they don't have chain restaurants in the middle of the ocean.

I can only hope that I, too, will vacation there one day. Your pictures are awesome, glad you guys had a good time!
