    I'll try to put this in more of a chronological order...

    We woke @ 3:30am for 6:30am flight to LAX. Met some friends in LA for lunch during layover. Flight to French Polynesia left @ 4:00pm pacific time (6pm our time), arrived Papeete @ 9:30pm local time, (2:30am the next day our time)
    Tired but excited. :|

    Day 1 - Tahiti / Moorea

    First night we stayed here:Google Maps Link

    Woke up in paradise and immediately went for walk with cameras in hand. Then to breakfast, a euro style buffet with fruits, cold cut meats, and lots of baked stuffs. Did manage for a little R&R in a hammock, but then back to the airport to begin our island hopping.

    Day 2 - Cont'd

    The plane was tiny, 20 seats, but the flight was only 10 minutes. :D Managed to catch some local wildlife while waiting for the pilot. Water colours are incredible! :faint:
    Here's where we stayed the 2nd night:Google Maps - Moorea
    Had time for a quick swim and more testing of the S90 in its u/w housing. Then catch sunset and on to dinner.

    The first photo reminds me of the chalets in Port Dickson. Of course, the sea isn't as clear... :(

    IMHO, the camera + underwater kit was a great investment! :thumb:
