Another coconut palm, Aitutaki

Just landed in Auckland after a wonderful week in the Cook Islands. I spent five days on the tropical island paradise of Aitutaki, enjoying some cycling, kayaking and a wonderful cruise on the clear turqoise lagoon to the outer islands with their coral sands and coconut palms. Also had lots of delicious food and visited a couple of the 'Island nights' to see the traditional Cook Island dancing. Now spending 7 weeks in New Zealand, then on to Sydney and Fiji. Will probably go to the Coromandel Peninsula next and then to the Bay of Islands, then head southwards. Some more photos from Aitutaki are in the next few posts (not quite worked out how to post multiple photos grouped together from Flickr to Blogger yet)
