Trip to Eden - A Tropical Paradise

Introduction by William L. Gills aka Bos'n Bill

I think most everyone longs for an Eden particularly when life goes awry.  Hey, an Eden is even good when things are going well.  Turns out there is a paradise in Papua, New Guinea that presents itself in a form most boaters or anyone with an inclination towards water can appreciate.  It's a place that has everything you would expect an Eden should have: brilliant deep tropical colors, clear, clean water, white sand, bubbling cascades, peaceful lagoons and native hand crafted boats.   It's a place where peace and harmony with nature is celebrated, where the sea meets the land and the land greets the sea.

Michael Fletcher, professional Australian photographer and filmmaker, takes us on an eight minute journey that highlights the beauty of this spectacular land.  The music by Hans Zimmer is from the movie, "The Thin Red Line".  Be sure to double click on the video for wide screen presentation. 

William L. Gills aka Bos'n Bill, webmaster of this site, is the author of the book Lubber's log, published by Llumina Press; a boating journal and adventure story of the author's first time experiences in the preparation, maintenance and piloting of a new, unfamiliar boat.
