Continuing On…

Captain’s Log

Mar 16 – We are now on a mooring at Marina Taina…………….progress !!! no more room to anchor the whole area is now taken up with moorings………the progress here is quite outstanding after 2 years of absence. The wind last night was a real pain………30knts from the south, but moved around to the se as we approached, I guess one day of headwinds in 3500 miles is OK……..We have come to papeete to get washing machine parts, plus gas bottle refill, plus stocking up for your trip. plus i need some boat supplies. It was amazing to go to a ‘real supermarket’ again………..wot a selection………but as you will recall at a huge price……….its unbelievable wot things cost here…………so be prepared for our shopping bill.

Mar 22 – Yap sounds fiery in Tonga……..We had tsunami warning here…….police came on jet skis and told all the yachts……..we were at supermarket……amazingly only one boat went to sea !!!!!!!!so what’s a warning worth ???

Mar 24 – We will leave Papeete 2mrw at 9am for Moorea and then on to Huahine………Great to leave here, due to the fact we are on the leeward side of the island, there is no wind at all……..so hot hot……it will be nice to be at anchorage in the trades……

Mar 25 – We are anchored in Moorea………5am start 2mrow for Huahine……….We are going to have our arrival party/dinner at the restaurant overlooking the boat 2mrow night……..We have saved the party for our arrival in the Leeward Islands….the completion of this part of the journey, 3800nm from La Paz !!!……now looking forward to what’s next…. our trip !!!
