Thinking of Going to the Cook Islands for Our Honeymoon

by Cornell »

Wondering if anyone has insight on which would be the most romantic hotel. Thanks in advance.

Forgive my typos in the above post. I couldn't see what I was typing and, as far as I can tell, this forum will not allow you to preview your reply and thereby allow for proofreading. So here is the corrected version:

Been to the Cook Islands twice, but some time ago. Both times, while on Rarotonga I stayed at Sokala Villas. It's not luxurious, but private and consists of just a few bungalows. It has a lovely setting right on Muri Lagoon, is next door to the Flame Tree Restaurant, and walking distance to the Pacific Resort and other hotels and restaurants facing Muri Lagoon. The round-the-island bus stops near the entrance to Sokala Villas so it is easy to get into town of Avarua (the island is small).

You might also consider the Pacific Resorts, not only in Rarotonga, but on Aitutaki and Manava islands. All amenities are offered. Aitutaki is a dream--a world away, serene, with a huge lagoon. I've not been to  Manava, but it must be gorgeous as well.

About proofreading: It's true that there is no preview feature before posting, but what you see after you click Submit needs not be the final post - if you see something that needs correction, simply click Edit and you're back in your post, in input mode. No need to start a second post, simply fix your first one and click Submit again.

Thanks for the proofreading tip. I will look for the "edit" choice.  This website used to have a great preview feature. Any idea what that "body p" means?

Part of my problem is my eyesight grows worse with each passing year. The strength of my reading glasses keeps increasing. Then there's my terrible typing, not quite the two finger technique, but almost as bad.

Strangely, after posting I am now seeing the preview feature, but no "edit" choice. I am just not going to worry about typos from now on.

Now I finally see the "edit" feature! I was possibly looking in the wrong place.

The Edit link only comes up when you revisit a post of your own. It lets you get back inside.

Re. "body p":

When I click "body" the entire text I have typed up to that point is being highlighted. (Same as, on a Mac, "Command-A" and, I think, on a PC "Control-A", meaning "Select and Highlight All).

Not sure what the "p" does, looks like it's doing the same as "body".

About failing eye sight: You know about the font size, don't you? Use the "body" link then select a bigger font size from the selector next to the word Size - it goes up (well, down if you scroll...) to huge sizes even if it's only for the time while you type away. You can always reduce it again before posting.
