Moving along

Just a short post and no pictures with this one. We’re leaving Marina Taina and the island of Tahiti today. The laundry is folded and put away, the last shopping trip before departure was completed yesterday, and the sun awning came down this morning; next we’ll fill the water tanks and the ice box, and take out the garbage. Then we’re off. The marina has been a good place to get some projects done (like reinstalling the water maker and working on the engine) and wonderfully convenient for shopping, but we are very ready to move on.

Our plan is to sail to Huahine, another island in this group. It’s a bit over 100 nm to the northwest, so it will be an overnight trip. We anticipate dropping the anchor inside this island’s coral reef sometime around mid-day tomorrow. We’ve heard the snorkeling in the large lagoon is very good, with lots of fish and coral. We’re looking forward to exploring this new-to-us island.
