Sofitel Ia Ora hotel
The above picture was taken from an overlook above the Ia Ora hotel. Anne, demonstrating her hawk-eye capabilities, noticed a constant stream of people looking over at the hotel from this lookout. Naturally, when we rented a car to tour the island this was our first stop. This picture, just doesn't do it justice. Dummy me, I had a polarizing filter but failed to use it! Had I the colors would have been much richer and more natural. Blues and greens that please the eye not this muddy looking mess. Sorry.

The hotel grounds were beautiful. Everything was separated by beautiful gardens and lily ponds with Tiki God sculptures. It was beautiful as you walked to and from dinner. Take a look ...
