As a surprise for my 50th birthday in 2003, my husband booked our family on a trip to French Polynesia! I had always dreamed of going to Tahiti and that year my dream came true. I was surprised how "civilized" it was there. I must have thought it would be similar to Paul Gaugin's experience but really it is set up for tourism. We flew to Tahiti and then sailed on the Tahitian Princess.
The beaches were pristine and the water was perfect for snorkeling.
Ah, blue water and gorgeous skies.
Lush green vegetation covered the islands
Beautiful flowers bloom all year long.
Sail away anyone?
Look for other dreamy skies at Skywatch Friday.
