Photographer's Note

Beautiful girl, who was Miss Cook Islands in costume of the Hula dance. Note the bra made of coconut shells & colourful skirt decorated with shells. The hula dancing is very much in the faric of the polynesian culture ( also where "Boy meets girl")Hula dancing is the traditional art of movement, smooth bodily gestures and vocals. You may notice that Hula Dancing seems to have an incredibly smooth "flow" and the movements are extremely fluid. These movements are said to actually tell a story or represent movements of nature such as trees blowing in the wind or fish swimming smoothly in the ocean. Cook islands are a croup of Islands in south pacific & are a protectorate of NZ. Rarotonga is the largest where you can feel far from the maddening crowd. If you want to absolutly isolated consider outer islands especially Puka Puka!
Most magical part is lying in the beach where mum & baby whales appeared but my camers was not handy.
