We are in French Polynesia!

We enjoyed a full day at Hanamoenoa Bay, it is a beautiful tropical bay. Temperatures are in the 80’s, the water is refreshing (it is easy to get cold if you stay in too long.) A white crescent beach is backed by lots of greenery. Huge Coconut Palm trees stand above it all.

Last night, we all had a FULL nights sleep after 26 days! The wind has picked up today, so we have been moving around a bit on our anchor, but it is lovely. Our main order of business was to rest and re-group, do some laundry and go into shore.

Late afternoon we pumped up the dingy, took it off the deck and put it into the water. We had a nice row to shore and a perfect beach landing. We had a little celebration, pictures taken, went for a swim and walked along the beautiful sandy beach and enjoyed a green flash at Sunset!

I think it is finally setting in. We crossed the Pacific and are now in French Polynesia!!!

How far did we go? April 24, 9 miles 😉

    Hi everyone – thanks so much for your blog. I have made copies for Hannah and ” the record”‘
    Must be so exciting to cross the equator and find those beautiful islands.
    I hope you have fair winds and smooth sailing for your next leg.
    Rest up.
