On This Day . . .
On January 23, 2018, we were docked in Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia, on the largest island of French Polynesia,Tahiti. We took a tour in 4X4 land rovers into the Papenoo Valley, with its' cascading waterfalls, luxuriant tropical vegetation and exotic flowers. The excursion traveled up the valley crossing the river and spillways several times before arriving at a lookout to view Mont 'Orohena, peeking out from the clouds. We experienced both rain and sun during the trip and despite the very rough roads it was well worth the journey.
