A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

I love to kayak at home, but somehow we usually forgo it on vacation. This time we were able to squeeze in lots of on the water time.

With water so clear, we were able to paddle and view all the coral and fish below.

Just like the disposable kind, you never know what kind of photos you will get when underwater.

After a long day in the sun, we made our way down the beach just in time for dusk.

French Polynesia is the only place I have ever been where the water is warm enough for S.U.P to even look like fun.

Sofitel Moorea's deck, where we spent many an hour sitting and talking.

Usually, the vibrant water would take center stage.

Sometimes the water would match the sky.

Other times the sky would outshine the water.

And when all light was gone from the sky, the stars came out to play and we dined at sand floor restaurants.
