"Wastin' away again in Margaritaville"*

Time to make you'll jealous again. The hubby and I are off to Tahiti! This will technically be a working vacation for me because I plan on doing some research for my mermaid story, which happens to take place in French Polynesia.

I hoping to step out of my comfort zone and talk with some of the residents of Moorea about life on the island. I'm also hoping to be able to visit a black pearl farm because one of the main characters (not the mermaid!) is a pearl farmer. And I downloaded Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau and The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan onto my Nook.

Okay, I do plan on spending a ton of time relaxing on the beach and snorkeling and basically doing nothing at all. See everyone in two weeks!
