I have a fascination with the South Pacific. Not the musical (I hate that thing) but the place. Specifically French Polynesia. Tahiti. Bora Bora. 

And Mo’orea. 

I’m not sure why I’m specifically drawn to Mo’orea– I think it was featured in a National Geographic in my youth and I became hypnotized by the beauty.  Or maybe because it is rumored to be the inspiration for Bali Hai. 

Recently a friend traveled to Bora Bora and his Facebook pictures reawakened my desire to see this area of the world.

It almost doesn’t look real….

Doesn’t it?  I mean, how can these colors exist without photoshop???  

And from all accounts, photos don’t do the place justice.
I feel I need to see this place for myself. I want to hike those peaks and laze on the beaches and kayak the lagoons and snorkel ans swim with sea turtles and Dory and Nemo and get lei’d.

Oh!  And there’s even The Mo’orea Dolphin Center (the only natural dolphin sanctuary) where you can swim with them!

I know that the Caribbean has similar islands and colors and beauty. And it’s a helluva lot closer. And Hawaii is also Polynesian and beautiful.  And also closer. 

But there’s something about Tahiti and Mo’orea and the South Pacific that tugs at my heart. 

Bali Ha’i may call you

Any night, any day

In your heart, you’ll hear it call you

“Come away, come away”
