Shinny Boats and Little Goats

Our parking spot inside Opunohu Bay on Moorea is very interesting in that it is the play ground of the large – and I mean large! – private yachts. In the three days that we are here there are two nearly 200 ft yachts, each with their harem of water to…

Moorea

Moorea still gets our vote for the prettiest of the Society Islands. Since we had traveled here 5 years ago on a holiday, we were not going to stop here with the boat, happily, we changed our minds. When we arrived, we anchored on the top, port side of…

Weather Reports and Weather Reports!

It is July 19 and we have been in Bora Bora for 11 days now. This is a first for long term anchorages for us, but the weather will not ease up and let us out. We are going to be heading back toward Tahiti, to Moorea and this is part of the problem as w…

Raiatea

The day we left Huahine for Raiatea was not the "best" weather day. It was rainy and windy and there were very large waves/swells in the small 20 mile channel that separates the two islands. It is comforting to know that this boat thinks noth…

Market ? What Market?

So we are all pumped up to go to Fare on Huahine for market day. According to the guide books and the girl in the scooter rental place – Yes, there is a market on Saturday. All day! Down by the cargo dock. Well, long story short, we bought a few suppli…
