31 May 2011 (-1 in time zone):

Another view of Aro'a Beach. As you can see, the water is pretty clear here. I found the different Polynesian languages very interesting, as I found that I could recognize some basic words in these languages by applying basic transforms of the phonemes depending on which language is spoken. In the Cook Islands, it's Cook Islands Maori.
