Motoring to Tahiti!

Yup, no wind out here, so we have been motoring for the last 24 hours. Based on the weather reports, that's what we are expecting the rest of the way. Doug swears we have plenty of fuel - hope so. What a amazing moon last night!

We are over half way there - less than 100 miles to go. We should be there first thing tomorrow morning. First things we have to do - find a place to dock/anchor and check in with the High Commissioner to get approval on our 6-month Visas. Wish us luck on both!

Definitely getting excited about seeing the big city of Papeete and playing tourist, plus meeting up with all of our cruising buddies. Latitude 38 is hosting the Tahiti-Moorea Sailing Rendezvous next weekend so all of the Puddle Jumpers are converging. The Rendezvous sounds wonderful with lots of native dancing, Polynesian sporting events, and even a cocktail party hosted by the Mayor of Papeete. Gotta to be a good time!

The current plans are to spend about 6 weeks touring Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, and other islands in the Society Archipelago. After that, we will start heading back East - we just aren't sure of our path. It all depends on how the winds are blowing. We definitely will be passing through the Tuamotus again - we loved those beautiful coral islands. Wait till you see the pictures! Hopefully, I will be able to post some this week.

We are thinking of you all and hoping you are all well and happy!
