Wish You Were Here - Cook Islands

Kia Orana! Sitting on our dear friends’ veranda in Rarotonga, we are mesmerised by the lagoon that rims the island and its ever-changing hues of blue. Our kids jump for hours on the trampoline or swing in the hammock, while we reminisce about old times, chat about our kids and politics, and laugh.

Our conversation and the kids’ playing is occasionally interrupted as we spot a whale gliding by just beyond the reef.

We hunt for hermit crabs and snorkel almost every day. Our kids squeal with delight through their snorkels as they spy on technicolour tropical fish, glistening trevally and vibrant blue starfish as big as dinner plates.

We explore Muri Lagoon on stand-up paddle boards and get quite a surprise when a stray, but friendly, dog decides to jump on board for a ride.

So many wonderful memories from our time in the Cook Islands – it will always be a special place for us.
