We had a rock-n-roll overnighter from Makemo, plus ran into some squalls. Nothing scary, just uncomfortable. So we didn't get much sleep, but the trip was worth it. Tahanea is just what we have been looking for.
This afternoon, we dinghy'd to shore with the crew from Evergreen. We decided that Tahanea was the perfect place to spread some of Steve's ashes and raise a toast - he would have loved it here. Miss you, Steve!
We aren't sure how long we will be here. We want to do some exploring, plus the guys want to use the Hooka to drift through the pass. The passes are always filled with an amazing amount of sea life (and big fish!). I am not sure I am up to it, but the guys are going to love it.
We will post pictures as soon as we find an internet connection...
