Port 8 Mo’orea — An emerald wonder

Stunning Landscape

As much as both Ursula and I enjoyed our Bora Bora Maohi Nui tour with Patrick, the beauty of Mo’orea simply overwhelms any comparison.  And the tour with Francky and FranckyFranck Tours was absolutely stunning in the vistas.  Like Patrick, Francky is quite the character.  He’s witty, funny, informative and fun.  Here’s his steed upon which he transports his guests:

There is a lot to see and do on Mo’orea, so we spent the better part of the entire day touring the island.  We, of course, were treated to great, high-vantage point shots of the towns, shoreline, and surrounding reefs, such as this:


But it was the tropical beauty in abundance at every turn that made this a very enjoyable photo destination despite the gray weather:


The vertical features are also quite stunning, especially when enhanced by turning your camera to portrait orientation:
