A Totally Relaxing Vacation<< All Articles
Fourteen years ago Wayne and I took an amazing trip to the Cook Islands in the South Pacific. On the island of Rarotonga there were no big hotels or fast food restaurants. The entire island closed down after noon on Saturday to get ready for Sunday church services. In fact, we were hard pressed to find restaurants open on Sunday. The people were amazing. I brought candy to give to the children and they gave me the oddest looks and said, “Why would we want candy when we can pick fruit off the trees?” Why indeed. The Cook Islands are unspoiled and beautiful with some of the most amazing plants and animals imaginable. It was a totally relaxing vacation and I would return in a heartbeat.
