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.

A vacant beach, a beautiful sunrise, equals a winning combination.

Ready to start the day with my overly large sunglasses and a flower in my hair. Each morning at breakfast they give both the men and women flowers to put behind their ears. A flower on the left side means you are married and the right means you are single.

I made sure to get a good pedicure before I left and I was happy to look down and see it the whole trip long.

The quintessential overwater bungalow, the exact type of photo which made us decide to come here.

This beautiful flower blooms just once for the day yellow and then starts to change color to a red orange and then falls off at night.

This is the bougainville which grows everywhere and was named after the explorer, Louis Antoine de Bougainville who claimed the islands for France.

The most touristy thing we did while on Moorea was visit the Tiki Village. Here we learned about how the people used to live, ate a traditional feast and then watched a mesmerizing performance.

The fire dancers were exceptional.

And better yet, they made for some fun photographs.

Moorea might be a small island, but they have it all from talent, to beauty and entertainment. A fun little fact, Moorea means yellow lizard. They have a large population of them, which visited our bungalow and various illuminated way finding signs while were there.
