This was the view from our anchorage towards the end of Opunoho Bay, Moorea. On the ridge in the center is a single palm tree, not large enough to see in this photo. When Captain Cook first anchored here (it was here where he anchored, not in the neighboring Cook's Bay which was named for him) he went with a raiding party up to this ridge, destroying several fine war canoes and burning houses. This was in retribution for the theft of one of his ship's longboats. The view shown here is also on the Polynesian 50 Franc coins.
