Just Chillin, Aitutaki, Cook Islands

Across from our island, we are guessing a kilometer or so, is an uninhabited island. We can see it has a really nice sandy beach and lots of vegetation. It also looked like the water was pretty shallow for the most part so we decided to try and walk/swim over to it. There is a channel in front of our island that is pretty deep and I had to walk on my tiptoes, but other than that the water never got over my waist, and most of the way it was just above our shins.

I didn’t take my camera with me so this is the only picture I have, which was taken from our beach looking over to the uninhabited island.

The rest of the day was pretty lazy and we had rain off and on. Really the rain had no effect on how we spent our day, which was mostly in the water, but it did put a damper (get it? It was damp out 🙂 ) on my reading as I didn’t want my book to get wet. 

So when the rain got to heavy it wasn’t that much of a let down to lie on the bed in our villa, with the air conditioning cranked, and read.

You just can’t beat this view!

Later in the afternoon we learned how to make an Ei to be worn around your head and I wore mine to dinner 🙂

Yes, even with wind and rain it was a really good day!

And here are today’s flowers.

Even the pool table and chess table are adorned with fresh flowers every day 🙂

Until next time …

  1. And what did you discover on the other island or were you not allowed to wander? It looks so beautiful. A picture of you wearing the Ei would have been nice. 🙂

    • It was just an island with tropical vegetation and white sandy beaches. We enjoyed walking around the beaches but the vegetation was so thick, and we had no shoes, so we couldn’t walk into the middle of the island.
