Mauke Holiday

By Mou Raea and family | Raumati Beach | 16 Jun 2021

The Mama in the pink is my Aunty Tungane. I think the photo is taken just outside her house. Me and my family stayed at her home in Mauke in 1989, just after Christmas.

We spent over a week on Mauke. I was brought up in Mauke and left when i was 10. It was a trip of a lifetime to show my young daughters where i grew up.

I took them to vai tango cave for a swim and showed them where i use to dive. I tested my daughter Trish if she could reach the bottom of the cave and to prove it to bring up a stone from the bottom. I was surprised because she brought up a stone, but i had never been able to dive down to the bottom haha.

We had the best selection of fruit! heaps of mangos, bananas, paw paw and pineapple. It was all we ate for the whole week!

It was a good experience for the family.
